LUBBOCK (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — A man who pretended to recruit models and lured a girl to a Texas shopping mall to shoot a sex video has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison.

In June, Amadeo Torres pleaded guilty to production of child pornography. The Lubbock man was sentenced Friday.

Torres, 24, was arrested last year at the South Plains Mall in Lubbock.

Investigators say Torres chatted online with a 14-year-old girl and pretended to be scouting for models. Authorities say he met the girl at the mall, took her into a family restroom, locked the door, got her to disrobe and then shot the video and molested her.

Torres was arrested a day later at the shopping center while allegedly trying to meet another girl.
