(KSL News) -- Already sentenced to 20 years in prison for possessing child pornography, Jacobo Rivera now has a plea and sentencing hearing this morning for seven felony counts of child rape, sodomy and child sex abuse.

He is accused of sexually abusing several children as young as five-years old, and taking pictures of the attacks.

His then-girlfriend discovered the photos and turned them into police. Some of the photos included her daughter and niece.

Rivera is an illegal immigrant who will be deported after serving his sentences.
