NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A St. Tammany Parish man will spend 21 years in prison on charges he ran two international child porn websites.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says 27,000 people from across the world used two websites operated by 28-year-old Jonathan Johnson, who lived near Abita Springs.

The websites allowed members to upload sexually explicit videos of young boys and provided tutorials for how to coerce minors into sexual acts.

Upon his release, Johnson will be placed on a term of supervised release for 10 years, and he will also be required to register as a sex offender.
