RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) – A Richmond man accused of making a sexually explicit video with two young girls will most likely spend the rest of his life behind bars.

A judge sentenced 60-year-old Frederick Botkin to 35 years in prison.

Prosecutors called the 17 minute video one of the most disturbing things they've ever seen.

He made the video with two girls under the age of 13 at his home on Walmseley Boulevard.

Prosecutors say the home contained a hidden trap door with stairs leading to a room where adult pornography was found.

Botkin pleaded no contest to the six felonies.
