SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A St. George man already serving 45 years to life in prison for sexually abusing children had more than 12 years added to his sentence this week on a separate charge.
Cary Lee Ludwig, 40, was sentenced Monday by U.S. District Judge Ted Stewart for manufacturing child pornography. The U.S. Attorney's office said the charge involved a girl under the age of 10 who was in Ludwig's home for day care.
Ludwig pleaded guilty to manufacturing child pornography in April. In exchange, pornography possession charges were dropped, and Ludwig was forced to surrender his computer equipment.
Ludwig is in prison serving the earlier state sentence. He was convicted of dealing in material harmful to a minor, two counts of sodomy on a child and three counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child.
He was sentenced last November to 15 years to life for each charge of sodomy, five years to life on each charge of aggravated sexual abuse and zero to five years for dealing in materials harmful to a minor.
Ludwig will serve eight years of his federal prison sentence concurrent with the state sentence. However, Stewart ordered Ludwig to serve the rest of his federal sentence, just under five years, after he finishes his state time.
