A Manchester man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for producing child pornography. Twenty-five-year old Kyle Kirby had pled guilty in federal court last month to one count of producing child porn. According to court records, Kirby used false accounts on Facebook and other on-line social networks to solicit minors.

Kirby posed as a minor female and persuaded 14 and 15 year-olds to send him sexually explicit pictures of themselves. Kirby also sent sexually explicit images to children to persuade them to generate and send images to him. He was sentenced in federal court to 240 months in prison, followed by 15 years of supervised release.
