EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) — An 80-year prison sentence has been handed a southern Illinois man who pleaded guilty to child pornography and predatory criminal sexual assault.

David J. VonBergen, 36, of Godfrey was arrested in September 2014 when police served a search warrant on his home. Police say VonBergen was downloading child pornography on his computer at the time of his arrest.

Authorities say a search of the computer turned up two videos made by the VonBergen depicting sexual acts between him and two sisters, ages 7 and 8.

Madison County Circuit Judge Neil Schroeder on Friday sentenced VonBergen to 25 years on each of the two counts of predatory criminal sexual assault. VonBergen received 15 years for each of the child pornography charges.

VonBergen must serve 57 years before he is eligible for parole.

VonBergen is listed on the Illinois Sex Offender Registry as non-compliant. He was registered following a child pornography conviction when he was 22.
