Jacksonville, Florida (AP) --

A 24-year-old Jacksonville man is going to federal prison for 20 years in a "sexting" case.

The U.S. Attorneys Office said Anthony William Denham was
sentenced for persuading a girl to use her cell phone to take and
send to him sexually explicit photos of herself. In exchange, he
gave the child prepaid minutes for her phone.

Prosecutors said Denham had contacted the girl through a social
networking site and used one of the photos she sent to create a
fake web page so he could impersonate a young girl online.

A jury had found Denham guilty in May of producing and receiving
child pornography. He was sentenced on September 13. When he gets out of prison, he'll serve probation for the rest of his life.
