A sex offender was arrested after a joint investigation between the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and Homeland Security.
32-year-old Brett Nolan Cico of St. Francis was accused of producing child pornography.
Police released his arrest photo on which he was seen smiling despite facing many years in prison over his horrific child sex abuse crimes.
Cico was accused of sexual abuse and taking photos of a 14-year-old girl, a 14-year-old boy, and another victim who was 15 years old.
He pleaded guilty to three counts of producing child pornography and three counts of sexual exploitation of a child while he was a registered sex offender, according to U.S. Attorney Tom Beall.
Cico was ordered to register as a sex offender in 2015 when he was convicted of a sex crime involving a 13-year-old.
He has now been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison.
