ALBUQUERQUE, July 16 (UPI) -- An Albuquerque man who once was a police officer in Missouri, has been sentenced to federal prison for child pornography, prosecutors said Tuesday.

James Carney Ritterhoff, 40, was sentenced Monday to 7 1/2 years in prison after pleading guilty to child pornography charges, the U.S. attorney's office said in a release. He is to be on supervised release for 10 years after completing his incarceration and will be required to register as a sex offender.

Court documents show Ritterhoff is a former Aurora, Mo., police officer who was working as an armed money courier in Albuquerque when he was arrested in June 2011. He has been in federal custody since then. He pleaded guilty to receiving child pornography and admitted receiving two emails containing electronic images of child pornography.
