Colorado Springs man sentenced for kidnapping toddler, producing child porn

A Colorado Springs man has been sentenced to life in prison for kidnapping a toddler and producing child porn.

Shawn McCormack, 31, was found guilty in April of four counts of sexual exploitation of a child and two counts of kidnapping. He was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday.

Prosecutors said McCormack traveled to a couple’s home in Bakersfield, California, pretended to be a friend, and stayed overnight at the home several times. During several of the stays, he removed the couple’s toddler from the home in the middle of the night. He then sexually abused the toddler in nearby motels and other locations. He returned the victim to the home before the parents woke up.

Prosecutors said McCormack photographed and recorded the sexual abuse, and distributed the images and videos to people online. He also recorded himself sexually abusing another toddler, and distributed those images as well.
