ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A former U.S. Border Patrol agent has been sentenced to 2 ½ years in federal prison in a child pornography case.

Federal prosecutors say 27-year-old Abel Michael Quiroz, of Las Cruces, will be on supervised release for five years after completing his prison term and must register as a sex offender.

Quiroz was charged in a criminal complaint with receiving and possessing photographs of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct between February 2013 and October 2013.

Homeland Security Investigations special agents executed a search warrant at Quiroz’s home where they seized evidence and arrested him last April.

Quiroz pleaded guilty in September to possession of child pornography.
