GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A 42-year-old Biloxi man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for filming a girl naked, and 10 years for downloading more than 400 videos and pictures of children engaged in sex acts.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1UGqdg0) Judge Louis Guirola Jr. ordered Thursday the sentences for Ruben Ralph-James Masters to run concurrently.

Masters pleaded guilty to the two federal charges in September.

He has also been indicted on a state charge of touching of a child for lustful purposes. The judge ordered that the federal sentence run concurrently to any state sentence.

Biloxi police arrested Masters in May 2015 after a cyber-crime investigator discovered he was accessing sexually explicit images of children via an internet file-sharing program.
