A Benton County man received a 60-year federal prison sentence Wednesday after police say they found a video of him fondling a boy and 12 videos of him sexually assaulting a girl.

Glen Baughman, 24, of Decatur, was sentenced in federal court in Fayetteville to 60 years in prison without parole. He will also be supervised for 25 years upon his release. The court also levied a $25,000 fine against Baughman, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Fort Smith.

Investigators with the Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce in Northwest Arkansas searched Baughman’s home last June and confiscated multiple computers, cell phones and digital storage devices. Authorities said Baughman produced 12 videos of him sexually assaulting an underage girl and one video of him fondling an eight-year-old boy.

Baughman pleaded guilty Oct. 10 to two counts of producing child pornography.
