ST. PAUL (WCCO) — A 43-year-old St. Paul man was sentenced to 30 years in prison in Ramsey County District Court Thursday for the criminal sexual assault of three young girls at his St. Paul apartment.
Mark Allen Busse is already serving a 30-year sentence for photographing and filming pornographic images of three girls and one boy who were all under the age of 10.
In the plea agreement, Busse admitted that on April 20, 2008, he took pictures and filmed one girl while she was sleeping. He also admitted in 2006 that he took photos of a second girl while she was sleeping. In 2008, he admitted to taking pictures and video of a third girl and a boy. In every instance, the images produced showed the children engaged in sexually explicit content.
According to the complaint, the videos clearly showed Busse fondling and penetrating both victims. Busse abused and photographed the third victim throughout 2006.
In addition to 30 years, Busse will have 25 years of supervised release.
