ELK RIVER -- The Sherburne County District Court has sentenced an Elk River man to thirty years in prison.

Thirty-year-old Wayne Leistico pleaded guilty in August to first and second degree Criminal Sexual Conduct.

In December, an investigation began when a video of Leistico engaging in a sexual act with a seven-year-old was discovered.

Warrants were executed in Sherburne and Anoka Counties where additional evidence was discovered, including over 1200 images of suspected child pornography.

Leistico also awaits possible charges in Federal Court for possession and manufacturing of child pornography.
