ORLANDO (REUTERS) - A former missionary who admitted taking pornographic photos of children while working with a tribe in the Amazon region of Brazil was sentenced on Tuesday, Jan 28, 2014, to 58 years in a US prison.

Warren Scott Kennell, 45, pleaded guilty in September to two charges of producing child pornography between 2008 and 2011.

Chief District Judge Anne Conway noted at the sentencing that Kennell had abused his position of trust as a missionary, the US Attorney's office in Tampa said in a statement.

Warren, who is from New Jersey, conceded that he had befriended children in the tribe and then sexually abused them while working on assignment for the New Tribes Mission of Sanford, Florida.
