NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey man who produced and transported sexually explicit videos of children has been sentenced to 34 years in prison.

Federal prosecutors say 54-year-old Patrick Deck, of Watchung, also must register as a sex offender under the sentence imposed Monday.

Deck had pleaded guilty last September to two counts of transporting child pornography.

State police arrested Deck at an amusement park in August 2012 for allegedly filming children in a bathroom without their parents’ knowledge. The next day, authorities executed a search warrant at Deck’s home and found multiple videos and images containing child sexual abuse.

Deck also has admitted that between 1997 and 2010, he transported two children, beginning when they were about 11 years old, to locations across the country so he could film them engaging in sexually explicit conduct.
