SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Federal officials say a Northern California baby-sitter and camp counselor has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for producing and conspiring to distribute child pornography.

United States District Judge Charles R. Breyer sentenced 21-year-old Ryan Michael Spencer Wednesday.

Spencer pleaded guilty in October to producing child pornography of children he took care of as baby-sitter, camp counselor and teacher-in-training in Aptos.

Federal prosecutors say Spencer molested at least two of the children he babysat, including one boy who was younger than 10 years old. They say investigators found a video on Spencer’s iPhone that shows him molesting one child.

Detectives with the FBI started investigating Spencer after they found child pornography in a computer belonging to Spencer’s co-defendant, Bryan Petersen, a chess coach and tutor in the Tiburon area.
