MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — If anyone should understand the consequences of their actions, it’s law enforcement officials.

A former sheriff’s deputy from Colorado has been sentenced to nine years in prison in a Florida child pornography case.

Court records show a Miami federal judge imposed the sentence Monday on 56-year-old Donald Glenn Beasley of Key Largo.

Beasley pleaded guilty to receiving and possessing child pornography in February. He was previously a sheriff’s deputy in Colorado Springs.

Evidence in the case shows the FBI discovered multiple images and videos of child pornography on electronic devices belonging to Beasley after executing a search warrant at his home. Many involved children under age 12.

Beasley also must serve 20 years on probation after his release from prison.
