Florida Talent Judge Sentenced For Child Porn

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A talent competition judge in central Florida has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for producing child pornography.

John David Baker was sentenced last week in federal court in Orlando.

Federal authorities say the 30-year-old acting coach helped train adults and children who were auditioning to work in film. He also was a judge for a talent competition.

Authorities say Baker said he had sexually oriented chats online with minors from the talent competition.

Authorities say Baker also created a fake Internet profile and persuaded two minors to send images of themselves engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

After seizing his computers, authorities found several images of minors engaged in sexual conduct.

Baker is a British citizen but resided in Celebration.
