KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A 34-year-old federal analyst in suburban Kansas City has been sentenced to more than five years in prison for possessing child pornography on a government computer.

The office of the U.S. Attorney for Kansas says Matthew Barnes of Overland Park pleaded guilty earlier to one count of possessing child pornography. He was sentenced Monday to 63 months in federal prison.

Prosecutors say investigators in 2012 found more than a dozen images of child pornography on a federal Drug Enforcement Administration computer assigned to Barnes. Barnes was an analyst for the DEA’s High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area program in Overland Park.

The office says Barnes was also a member of the Missouri National Guard.
