INDIANAPOLIS (November 21, 2015) — A southeastern Indiana man has been sentenced to 35 years in prison after pleading guilty to producing child pornography.

Federal prosecutors say 28-year-old Todd Chambers of Batesville pleaded guilty to nine counts of producing child pornography. He was sentenced Friday in federal court in Indianapolis.

Prosecutors say Chambers told investigators he produced and distributed through the Internet a series of images of child exploitation. Authorities say he produced those images over a three-month period and possessed thousands of other images of child exploitation on his digital camera, laptop, cellphone and other electronic devices.

The FBI and the Indiana State Police investigated the case with assistance from the Batesville Police Department as part of Project Safe Childhood. That nationwide multi-agency effort aims to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse.
