    Elconin would place advertisements online for people to hire him as a nanny, writing that his "top priority" was to keep the children in his care safe.

    A former California nanny was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison for making child pornography videos with the children in his care, authorities said.

    Travis Elconin of Burbank produced pornographic videos with at least five children, most of whom were 8 and 9 years old, between August 2016 and November 2018, said the U.S. Attorney of the Central District of California in a press release. The government identified eight victims connected to Elconin, according to the release.

    The 35-year-old used his iPhone 8 to film the videos, the U.S. Attorney said.

    "Elconin used his position as a nanny to exploit and abuse the children in his care, holding himself out as the 'perfect caretaker,' which induced numerous families — including his friends — to hire him," the press release states, citing court documents.
