AN IPSWICH magician has been jailed after admitting taking photographs of and sexually abusing four underage girls.

Ipswich District Court heard Franky Houdini, 36, approached some of the girls about modelling work and then took sexualised photographs and molested them.

He also made two pornographic movies with underage girls which he said he would sell on the "black market".   Houdini pleaded guilty to a string of offences and was sentenced to six years jail.

He will be eligible to apply for parole on March 8 next year with 810 days spent in pre-sentence custody taken into account.
