FORT WORTH —
(AP) - A 27-year-old North Texas man who did volunteer work with children at a church has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison on a child pornography charge.
Prosecutors say Derek M. Ripley of Fort Worth was sentenced Friday on one count of distributing child pornography.
He also was ordered to be under supervised release for life. He pleaded guilty in May.
Authorities say Ripley admitted to using the Internet to distribute three images of boys engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
He worked with youth at Trinity Chapel Church in Benbrook, a Fort Worth suburb.
