A Lehigh Acres man has been sentenced to federal prison in connection to child pornography.

On Oct. 3, U.S. District Judge Sheri Polster Chappell sentenced William Lee, 38, to 30 years for producing child pornography, according to officials.

He was also ordered to forfeit his cellphone, which was used to commit the offense. According to court documents, Lee produced a video of himself engaged in sexually explicit conduct with a minor.

He pleaded guilty on June 14.

On Sept. 16, 2016, deputies responded to the victim's residence in Lehigh and made contact with the girl and her mother. The child's mother provided the deputies with Lee's deactivated cellphone.

A subsequent forensic examination of Lee's deactivated phone revealed two videos produced Dec. 23, 2015, and Aug. 30, 2016, that captured Lee engaging in sexual explicit conduct with the girl.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Yolande G. Viacava. It was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Child Exploitation Task Force and Lee County Sheriff's Office.
