TYLER, Texas (AP) — An East Texas man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison in a child pornography case in which a minor was lured into posing for sexually explicit images.

Federal prosecutors in Tyler say 46-year-old Robbie Newby of Grapeland in January pleaded guilty to sexual exploitation of children.

Investigators say Newby coerced an individual under age 16 to engage in sexually explicit conduct for producing visual depictions of the behavior.

Prosecutors on Monday announced the penalty for Newby, who was indicted and arrested a year ago in allegations going back to 2012 in Anderson County.

Grapeland is 120 miles north of Houston.
