A North Texas man is headed to prison after pleading guilty to production of child porn, the Department of Justice says.

Darryn Webb, 20, of Irving, was sentenced Friday to 15 years in federal prison after entering a guilty plea in February to one count of production of child pornography.

Officials said the FBI's Dallas Child Exploitation Task Force learned Webb persuaded a 5-year-old girl to engage in sexually explicit conduct so that he could photograph her at his home on March 23, 2015.

Webb was arrested last September on a related complaint, the DOJ said.

In a news release on Webb's arrest, the DOJ said 2016 is the 10th anniversary of the Project Safe Childhood initiative, which uses federal, state, tribal and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute those who exploit children.

"Since fiscal year 2011, the Department of Justice has filed 20,260 PSC cases against 19,111 defendants. These cases include prosecutions of child sex trafficking; sexual abuse of a minor or ward; child pornography offenses; obscene visual representation of the sexual abuse of children; selling or buying of children; and many more statutes," the department said in a news release.
