A Mercer man has been sentenced to at least 35 years in prison on charges he molested four juvenile girls, filmed the activity, and sold copies of the film to at least two other men.

44 year-old Armando Cruz was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court following guilty pleas he submitted in court proceedings in July.  The case brought in the investigative talents of the FBI.

Whenever he may be released from prison, Cruz will always thereafter be required to serve supervised release.

Mercer County law enforcement officials are also reportedly seeking to press charges against Cruz.
