Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Rochester man has been sentenced to over nine years in prison for sexual abuse and child pornography convictions.

41-year-old John Stubbs was given credit for the over a year and a half he has already spent in jail and will be under conditional release for 10 years following the completion of his prison sentence. Earlier this month, Stubbs pleaded guilty to one count each of second-degree criminal sexual conduct and possession of child pornography.

He was accused of sexually abusing a young girl on multiple occasions beginning when she was 10-years-old. The charges against Stubbs alleged the abuse occurred over a period of about a year and a half until it ended in December 2012.

He was later charged in the child pornography case after an investigation was launched into the suspicious death of an unborn child and it was discovered Stubbs had been in a "significant sexual relationship" with the mother of the baby. The charges stated she was under the age of 18 and told investigators Stubbs created a number of sexually explicit videos of the two of them when she was 16 and 17-years-old.
