LOS ANGELES - A former Los Angeles police 911 operator has been sentenced to six years in prison for receiving child pornography.
Brandon Simpson was sentenced Thursday in federal court. U.S. District Judge John Kronstadt said the child porn that was found in this case, which included images of infants being sexually assaulted, were beyond repugnant.
The 28-year-old Simpson was arrested in September 2011 and later pleaded guilty to one count of receiving child pornography. He admitted in his plea agreement that he had more than 600 images of child pornography. Among them were images depicting bondage of very small children.
Simpson was fired from the Los Angeles Police Department in 2012.
