KALAMAZOO, Mich. — A man was sentenced to 27 years in federal prison on criminal sexual conduct charges involving a minor.

Anthony Short pleaded guilty to taking sexually suggestive photos of a minor and transporting them across state lines. Investigators say the victim was 10 years old when the abuse first started.

According to court documents, Short took pictures showing himself touching the girl’s genital area and told her to sleep with him naked because that’s what his wife did.

Investigators say they found sexually explicit photos of the girl on his personal computers.
