CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — A Texas thrift store worker must serve 60 years in prison for producing child pornography by recording customers changing clothes in dressing rooms.

Daniel H. Aleman II was sentenced Thursday by a federal judge in Corpus Christi.

Aleman, who worked at a Goodwill Industries store in nearby Portland, was convicted last year of two counts of production of child pornography.

Prosecutors say Aleman in 2014 attached a small video recorder to a shopping cart. Aleman positioned the cart under the bottom gap of the dressing room door. Investigators say one of the videos showed a woman dressing a 4-year-old girl.

A January 2015 search of Aleman’s home led to confiscation of several electronic devices, which included more than 20 videos of females in dressing rooms. He was arrested last April.
