ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A western New York man has been sentenced to 18 years in prison for making child pornography and sexually abusing a 10-year-old girl, sometimes with his girlfriend participating.

Prosecutors say 38-year-old John Kohlmeier of Greece pleaded guilty to criminal sexual act in state court in March. He pleaded guilty to related federal charges in April. He and Bonnie Hughes were arrested last year.

Police say Hughes took photos of the child’s genitals and sent them to Kohlmeier. Prosecutors say Kohlmeier had sexual contact with the child on multiple occasions, sometimes with Hughes.

Hughes has also pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing.
