PITTSBURGH – A retired Pennsylvania Turnpike worker has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for having another since-retired co-worker email sexually explicit pictures of a 12-year-old girl to him.

Fifty-seven-year-old John Longo, of Jeannette, was sentenced Friday by a federal judge Pittsburgh.

He pleaded guilty in August to having Lisa Renze, of Uniontown, take pictures of the girl, which were sent to him.

Renze pleaded guilty in April to producing child pornography and was sentenced to 16 years, eight months in prison in November.

Federal prosecutors say Renze sent Longo the pictures between June 2009 and November 2010, when they were still co-workers.
