COOS BAY, Ore. (AP) -- A former education assistant and coach in the Bandon School District was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison for sexually abusing a 2-month-old girl and distributing photos of the abuse on the internet in 2016.

Sean Jeffrey Haga, 33, was also sentenced to a life term of supervised release.

"Mere hours passed between FBI agents first discovering the photographic evidence of Sean Haga's abuse online and their rescue of the infant victim assisted by local law enforcement," U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams said.

In 2018, Haga pleaded guilty to one count of sexual exploitation of a minor.
