EAST ST. LOUIS (KMOX) –  A Metro East man is sentenced to 25 years in prison for taking nude pictures of a minor and possessing child pornography.

Blake Joseph Young, 41 with a last known address in Bethalto, was ordered to spend 300 months in federal prison during sentencing Friday in East St. Louis.

He’d earlier pleaded guilty to enticing a 12-year-old boy into his motor home and taking pornographic photos of the child.

Young also showed the boy nude photos of another minor child which he’d stored on his cell phone.

Following his prison term, Young will be under legal supervision for the rest of his life.
