EL CAJON, Calif. – A Campo man who sent sexually explicit material to young actresses and mailed similar items to a 12-year-old girl featured on the reality show "Dance Moms'' was sentenced Tuesday to three years in state prison.

Phoenix Sundown, 37, pleaded guilty last month to "tweeting'' the sexually explicit material.

He also pleaded guilty to animal cruelty for posting a YouTube video in which he set a live mouse on fire in a toilet, said Deputy District Attorney Carlos Campbell.

After getting handed down the prison sentence, Sundown made a bizarre remark about Paris Jackson, daughter of Michael Jackson, and requested people vote for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

"[Sundown] said it was worth it because of his experienced with Paris Jackson. I don't know what he's talking about," said deputy district attorney Carlos Campbell.

Sundown was arrested last Sept. 1.
