A Westmoreland County man admitted in federal court on Thursday that he asked another adult to take and send him images of a 12-year-old child being sexually exploited.

John S. Longo, 57, of Hempfield pleaded guilty to a count of producing child pornography. He faces a minimum of 15 years in prison when U.S. District Judge Nora Barry Fischer sentences him on Jan. 22.

The retired Turnpike Commission employee asked another former turnpike employee, Lisa A. Renze, to take and send him images from June 2009 through November 2010, prosecutors say.

Renze, 48, of Uniontown pleaded guilty in April to producing child pornography. Assistant U.S. Attorney Carolyn Block said at Renze's plea hearing that the Fayette County woman between 2009 and 2011 persuaded a minor to engage in sexual conduct while she took photos.

Fischer has scheduled Renze's sentencing for Oct. 16.
