KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City man sentenced to 245 years in prison for drugging children with sleeping-pill laced ice cream so he could create porn says he wants to lead a "pro-pedophile" movement from prison.

During sentencing Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Dean Whipple told 63-year-old James Phillip Edwards that his "conduct is beyond comprehension." 

The Kansas City Star reported that Edwards videotaped his assaults on 13 girls over a four-year period.

Edwards pleaded no contest in March 2011 to 21 counts related to producing and distributing child pornography.

Court records say Edwards' plan to become a pro-pedophile activist came to light in an essay he wrote called, "The Pedophile Minority." Prosecutors said in a sentencing document that Edwards decided to be the "standard-bearer for pedophiles" and to start while in prison.
