JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)
A former Camden County deputy was sentenced to eight years in federal prison after he pleaded guilty to having child pornography.
Leonard Wilson, 41, was also sentenced in federal court to 10 years of probation.
Under the terms of Wilson's plea agreement, he is required to surrender his peace officer license and enter guilty pleas in two related state cases.
Wilson was employed as a Camden County sheriff's deputy at the time of the offenses.
During an internal investigation for allegations of sexual misconduct and behavior, while he was both on and off duty, deputies obtained a tablet and two cell phones used by Wilson with dozens of images of child pornography.
