DALLAS (AP) - A former Texas police officer has been sentenced to the maximum 10 years in federal prison for possession of child pornography.

Brian Kelley of Quinlan was sentenced Friday in Dallas.

The 41-year-old Kelley last January pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography. Prosecutors say Kelley in September 2013 had a flash drive that contained still images and video of a girl engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Prosecutors say Kelley, at the time of the offense, was a police officer at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. A UT-Southwestern spokesman says Kelley was fired In October 2013 before court proceedings began.

Authorities say Kelley formerly was a deputy with the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office.
