Former police officer sentenced for child porn

Friday - 8/16/2013, 10:58pm  ET

BALTIMORE (AP) -- A former civilian police officer at Fort Detrick has been sentenced to four years in prison for possessing child pornography.

Forty-three-year-old James Andrew Wagner of Hagerstown was also ordered to register as a sex offender at sentencing Friday in federal court in Baltimore.

According to his place agreement, an undercover FBI agent in Kansas downloaded child pornography images from Wagner using a file-sharing program. Several months later, an FBI agent in Baltimore also downloaded child pornography from Wagner.

After a raid on Wagner's home, agents found more than 600 files of child pornography on his computer and other devices.
