HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A 33-year-old Waipahu man has been sentenced to 30 years in jail for producing child pornography.

Authorities said Honolulu police found more than 480 photos on Derek West’s cell phone, showing children engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Investigators later determined that more than 50 of the photos were of a 2-year-old girl engaged in sexual acts with West.

West, who pleaded guilty to the offense, must also serve a lifetime term of supervised release following his jail time.

He has been in custody since his arrest on Dec. 14, 2014.
