An Orange County sex offender with nine prior convictions was sentenced to 25 years to life Tuesday for possessing thousands of pornographic images of children and photos showing children being tortured and mutilated, authorities said.

Vaughn Robert Biby, 47, a Fullerton resident, was charged with having pictures and videos showing showing infants and young children bathing, swimming in pools and being potty trained, according to the Orange County district attorney's office.

Biby also had books and Internet photo printouts depicting children being raped, murdered and tortured, the district attorney's office said.

Prosecutors said his prior convictions were for lewd and lascivious acts on minors in Orange and Los Angeles counties.
