    A former teacher and camp counselor who admitted paying a teenage boy to send him nude images and watching online child sex abuse shows is now headed to federal prison.

    Colin Skeele received a 15-year sentence Tuesday. The 32-year-old Florham Park man had pleaded guilty last year to producing child pornography.

    In 2011, prosecutors say Skeele paid a 17-year-old boy $100 to send nude images of himself, and later sent one of the images to another youth. He had first met the teen at a camp where Skeele worked as a counselor.

    On multiple occasions between 2012 and 2014, Skeele communicated online with people in the Philippines to buy live child sex abuse shows, which Skeele directed and watched in real time via a video and chat service.
