NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A 48-year-old New Orleans man has been sentenced to 50 years in prison after pleading guilty to rape and child pornography.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1bL9hGo ) Edward Bush pleaded guilty Monday to 14 counts of rape and nine counts of child pornography involving a juvenile - a small fraction of the nearly 900 counts he faced for raping girls and recording the acts.

Prosecutors say Bush used his computer and camera equipment to record the abuse of a girl who was 12 when the incidents began in 2003.

On equipment taken from Bush’s home, authorities also found video and still images of Bush and a second victim.

Several of the images were filmed over a five-year period ending in 2008.
