A federal judge called a Marshfield man a serial child abuser while giving him a 50-year prison term Thursday for producing child porn. 

Forty-eight-year-old Mark E. Bartz produced the pornography using an infant and a toddler last year, then posted it online.  Federal prosecutors say he engaged in sexually explicit conduct with minor victims over a period of several decades.  He was also accused of administrating online chat groups dedicated to trading child porn.
