TYLER, Texas (AP) - A Dallas-area photographer who did senior portraits for some graduates in East Texas must serve 20 years in prison for producing child pornography.

Todd B. Fleming of McKinney was sentenced Tuesday in Tyler.

The 54-year-old Fleming last October pleaded guilty to sexual exploitation of children. Investigators say Fleming from 1999 to 2007 coerced juveniles to engage in sexually explicit conduct for producing child porn.

Fleming in 2013 was indicted on two dozen counts of sexual exploitation of a child and one count of possession of child pornography. He pleaded guilty to just one count involving several minors. The other charges were dropped.

Prosecutors say Fleming took high school senior photos and other images for some students in the Tyler Independent School District.
