Two Texas men have been sentenced to federal prison as part of nationwide crackdown on child pornography dubbed Operation Sunflower.
William Craig Noonan of Houston was sentenced Thursday to 30 years in prison. David Morse Barry of Wichita Falls received a 27-year term during sentencing in Houston.
The 39-year-old Noonan last March pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography, to distribution of child pornography and to two counts of conspiracy to produce child pornography.
Barry, who's 55, was convicted last June of two counts of conspiracy to produce child pornography and of two counts of production of child pornography.
Federal officials previously said that Noonan, a registered sex offender, was part of a case in which two children were rescued in Dallas in 2012.
