Kansas man gets 260 years for producing child porn

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A central Kansas man has been sentenced to 260 years in prison for using a 9-year-old girl to produce child pornography.

U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten handed down the punishment Monday to 50-year-old Philip Andra Grigsby, of Marquette.

Grigsby pleaded guilty earlier to eight counts of sexual exploitation of a child and one count each of possession of child pornography and unlawful possession of a firearm after a felony conviction.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says in a news release that he wants the sentence to send a message.

The investigation began after Grigsby sent emails containing child porn to an Australian man. Investigators were able to identify the victim after noticing the name of a middle school on a physical fitness certificate.

A restitution hearing is scheduled June 24.
