ST. LOUIS, July 7 (UPI) -- The owner of a St. Louis-area video arcade has been sentenced to 290 years in federal prison for molesting and photographing children during all-night sessions.

Leland Beasley, 43, owner of Gamestation Section 19 in Lemay, Mo., was convicted in April of production of child pornography and attempted production of child pornography, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Jurors saw videos made during all-night "lock-ins" at the store after boys had fallen asleep.
