EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (KSDK) - A Freeburg, Illinois man has been sentenced on child enticement and child pornography charges.

Clayton R. Collins, 35, was sentenced Monday to 25 years in prison on a five count indictment of enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity, transportation of child pornography, receipt of child pornography, possession of child pornography, and receipt of obscene matter.

When Collins is released from prison he will be on supervised release for the rest of his life and required to register as a sex offender.

Court documents state Collins began talking with a 13-year-old girl through a social networking website in September 2011. Authorities say he sent her messages on the website as well as text messages to lure her into having sex with him on four occasions between September 28, 2011 and October 16, 2011.

Child pornography images were recovered from his computer, including 101 images of a different 13-year-old girl engaged in sexual activity with Collins.

Other photos and videos recovered from his computer showed depictions of bestiality.

Collins has been in custody since June 15, 2012.
