Chef's ex-girlfriend gets 12 years for conspiracy to sexually exploit children

CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) -- The ex-girlfriend of a New Jersey chef who conspired with him to produce sexually explicit images of two children has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Janine Kelly will also have to serve 10 years of supervised release under the sentence imposed Friday. The 36-year-old Audubon resident had pleaded guilty last August.

Federal prosecutors say Kelley and Alexander Capasso took "recorded images" of her engaged in sexually explicit conduct with the children between November 2011 and October 2012. They also took photos of Capasso engaged in similar conduct with one child.

Capasso was sentenced earlier this month to 20 years in prison.

The couple was arrested in July 2105 after prosecutors say Capaso exchanged pornographic images with investigators.

Capasso operated restaurants in Collingswood and Philadelphia.
