FORT MYERS, Fla. - Federal prison awaits a North Fort Myers couple caught producing a child pornography video.

35-year-old Alan Robert Johnson and 39-year-old Jennifer A. Sparks pleaded guilty this week to production of child pornography. Johnson faces a mandatory minimum penalty of 25 years, up to a maximum penalty of 50 years in federal prison. Sparks faces a mandatory minimum penalty of 15 years, up to a maximum penalty of 30 years in federal prison. A sentencing date has not yet been scheduled.

The plea agreement shows that in May 2012 Johnson had sex with a 4-year-old girl.  Sparks helped in producing the video.

A month later a private citizen found the cell phone used to shoot the sex act and turned it over to law enforcement.  The cell phone was found at in a Lee County Walmart shopping cart.

It turned out that Johnson was a registered sex offender.  A second cell phone was found in the  bedroom shared by Sparks and Johnson. That cellular phone also contained sexually explicit images of the minor.
