An Independence man who molested multiple children and used them to make child pornography was sentenced Tuesday to 30 years in federal prison.

Randy Mull, 37, and co-defendant Kenneth R. Davis, 36, both pleaded guilty earlier this year to aiding and abetting each other to produce child pornography.

Davis will be sentenced at a later date.

That charge involved a 14-year-old victim, but investigators found pornographic images involving five different victims, including two who were younger than 12, according to prosecutors.

As part of the sentencing, Mull was ordered to pay $5,000 in restitution to each of the victims.
