El Paso Man Gets Nearly 19 Years For Child Porn Video

A West Texas man has been sentenced to nearly 19 years in federal prison for directing two children to perform sex acts as he made a pornography video.

Prosecutors in El Paso say 48-year-old Tomas Steven Quinones was sentenced Monday.

Quinones in May pleaded guilty to production of child pornography. Investigators say Quinones in a 2010 video is seen and heard instructing two children on how to have sex.

Federal agents last August raided the El Paso man's home and seized more than 90 computers, accessories and other electronic devices. Investigators say the items contained about 25,000 child porn images.

Quinones was sentenced to 225 months behind bars.
