ROCHESTER, New York — A New York man in prison for raping a 16-year-old girl has been sentenced to an additional 15 years for recording the assault.

Federal authorities say 41-year-old Shannon Lewis of Elmira was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Rochester Friday for production of child pornography.

U.S. Attorney William Hochul (HOH-kuhl) says Lewis is currently serving a 2 ½-year sentence in state prison for rape. Federal charges were filed after investigators found several homemade, sexually explicit videos of the victim. The videos also show Lewis giving the girl drugs.

Authorities say Lewis harbored at-risk minors who ran away from a nearby juvenile facility.
