ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A registered sex offender from the Albany area has been sentenced to 80 years in prison for producing child pornography.

Federal prosecutors say 56-year-old Robert McCoy of Glenmont and Selkirk was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Albany, where he was convicted last summer of sexual exploitation of a minor, possession of child pornography and committing a felony involving a minor while being a registered sex offender.

Authorities say McCoy produced sexually explicit images of a minor in an empty camper on his Glenmont property in the summer of 2014. Officials say he also possessed a collection of child pornography obtained from the Internet.

McCoy, registered as a Level 1 sex offender, was sentenced in 2009 to probation for possessing child pornography.
