MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. (AP) - A former Air Force sergeant who once served at a base in New Jersey has been sentenced to four years in state prison for distributing child pornography.

Cavada was a technical sergeant stationed at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst when he was arrested in May 2014. He lived in Pemberton Township at the time.

Prosecutors have said Cavada used a file sharing service to make child porn videos available online for others to download, Investigators said many of the videos contained graphic images of pre-pubescent girls engaging in sexual acts with men.
