LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -

A Nebraskan who federal prosecutors say was part of a child pornography ring has been sentenced to 35 years in prison.

Prosecutors say 31-year-old Brandon Hennerberg, formerly of Fairbury, was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Lincoln. In June he'd pleaded guilty to one count of child exploitation enterprise.

Hennerberg and five co-defendants were charged in the Eastern District of Michigan in a 28-count indictment that included conspiracy to produce child pornography. Prosecutors say the six schemed to deceive at least 100 girls into online sexual activity that was recorded.

Gina Balaya in the Michigan prosecutor's office said Thursday that Hennerberg had requested that his case be transferred to Lincoln for his pleading and sentencing.

Prosecutors say two co-defendants await sentencing. Cases are pending for the three others.
