BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Montana man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison on child sex charges in North Dakota.

Michael Simmons Sr., of Butte, Montana, pleaded guilty in federal court earlier this year to sexual exploitation of minors.

Authorities say the 55-year-old Simons took sexually explicit photographs and videos of minors under the age of 10. The camera he used was discovered by a relative who was visiting him in Butte.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland also ordered Simmons to serve a lifetime of supervised release when he finishes his prison sentence.
