A former Los Angeles Police Department 911-operator was sentenced to six years in federal prison on Thursday for receiving child pornography, which authorities described as "beyond repugnant," according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Brandon Simpson, 28, had images of infants being sexually assaulted, authorities stated.
Simpson, of Long Beach, was arrested during an investigation into a peer-to-peer network in September 2011 and he pleaded guilty in June 2012 to one count of receiving child pornography.
A search warrant by police resulted in recovering hundreds of images of child pornography, according to federal officials.
In his plea agreement, Simpson admitted that his pornography collection contained more than 600 images. Some were images of bondage of very small children, stated officials.
