DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas-area man must serve 90 years in federal prison for production of child pornography and molesting two of the juvenile victims.

Servando Cervantes (ser-VAHN’-tays) of Hutchins was sentenced Thursday in Dallas. The 25-year-old Cervantes in 2015 pleaded guilty to three counts of production of child pornography involving four victims.

Prosecutors on Friday said Hutchins police in 2014 contacted the FBI about online communication by someone claiming to be a 13-year-old girl. Investigators say that person turned out to be Cervantes, who enticed the victims into sexually explicit conduct, then took photos.

Investigators say the abuse involved children ages 15 and younger. Authorities did not immediately say how Cervantes arranged to meet the victims.
