Federal prosecutors say a 68-year-old southern New Jersey man who sexually abused a toddler and streamed footage of the assault online has been sentenced to 20 years in prison. 

Rodford Brindley of Toms River must also register as a sex offender under the sentence imposed this week and will have to serve five years of supervised release once he's freed from prison.

He had pleaded guilty in June to a complaint charging him with sexual exploitation of a child.

Law enforcement authorities in Ohio had engaged in online chats with Brindley as part of an investigation they were conducting.

During an April 2012 chat, Brindley began sexually assaulting the toddler, who was in his care. He used a webcam to record the assault and stream it over the Internet.
