FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A former Missouri police officer must serve 20 years in federal prison in a Texas child pornography case.

Erik Miltonhall was sentenced in Fort Worth.

Prosecutors on Tuesday announced the penalty for the 40-year-old Miltonhall, who in August pleaded guilty to transportation of child pornography.

Investigators say Miltonhall in 2014 stayed with a friend in Arlington and used that person’s computer to transmit child pornography.

Records show Miltonhall was hired as a police officer in Ellington, Missouri, in October 2008 and resigned in April 2009. Ellington is a town of about 1,000, located 120 miles southwest of St. Louis.

Miltonhall was sentenced Dec. 10.
