OAKLAND CO., Mich (WLNS) – A Highland Township man who admitted making films of himself having sex with underage girls is going to prison.

Our media partners at WHMI are reporting that 37-year-old Nino Tanzini was sentenced in federal court to 50 years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of producing and possessing child pornography.

That sentence will be followed by five years of supervised released and Tanzini must pay $100,000 in restitution.

Investigators say Tanzini began having sex with the girls when they were 14 and 16 years old. The girls believed they were having long-distance, online relationships with young men, who then suggested the girls get sexual experience by visiting Tanzini.

The girls later discovered Tanzini was in fact playing the parts of the online boyfriends.
