CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A chef has pleaded guilty to conspiring to sexually abusing two children to make child pornography.

Federal prosecutors said that 43-year-old Alexander Capasso pleaded guilty on Tuesday. He had previously pleaded not guilty in the case.

Capasso operated restaurants in Collingswood and Philadelphia. He faces up to 20 years in federal prison when he is sentenced Sept. 20.

Prosecutors say Capasso took “recorded images” of his then-girlfriend engaged in sexually explicit conduct with the children between November 2011 and October 2012. They also allegedly took photos of Capasso engaged in similar conduct with one child.

Janine Kelly pleaded guilty last August. She faces between 15 and 30 years in prison when she’s sentenced Oct. 13.

The couple was arrested in July 2015 after prosecutors say Capasso exchanged pornographic images with investigators.
