A Ford County man was sentenced to consecutive sentences, totaling 140-years in prison, for sexual exploitation of several children.
The News-Gazette reports the FBI and Illinois State Police were involved in the investigation of 78-year-old Toetim Cizmar of Cabery. He was given four consecutive 30-year sentences for the offenses followed by a 20-year sentence for possession of child pornography.
Cizmar pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual exploitation of a child. The offense involved three children, ages 3 - 6 years old.
Authorities say Cizmar "engaged in sexually explicit conduct with the children.” Cizmar also pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography when he was arrested.
