WARREN, Ohio (AP) -- A 65-year-old northeast Ohio man with a flowing white beard who often told neighborhood children he was Santa Claus has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for having child pornography on his computer.

A judge in Trumbull County sentenced Niles resident William F. Brock Sr. on Thursday after he pleaded guilty to 35 child porn charges.

Prosecutors say evidence found on Brock's computer included videos showing rapes being committed against an 8-year-old girl in nearby Austintown by his girlfriend in 2012.

The girlfriend was sentenced in September to 25 years in prison for raping two children and having sexually explicit images on a cellphone.

A prosecutor says there's no evidence Brock sexually assaulted children.

Brock declined to comment in court.
