Cop Who Made Child Porn From Patrol Car Sentenced To 120 Years

 Sgt. Kyle Adam Kirby was accused of outfitting his patrol car to secretly record children. 

A former police sergeant from Florida has been handed over a century behind bars for making child pornography from his patrol car.

Former Live Oak police Sgt. Kyle Adam Kirby was sentenced to 120 years in federal prison for making and possessing child pornography on Thursday, according to The Associated Press. A jury found him guilty in December.

Kirby, 37, was additionally found guilty of downloading pornographic images, dating back to 2014, on the computer in his patrol car. As for the making of child porn, the prosecution said that Kirby used hidden cameras to secretly record minors in his patrol car.

Kirby was indicted for the sex crimes in 2015.

According to an FBI press release, “a forensic examination of the patrol car computer used by Kirby revealed that it contained at least 87 thumbnail images in a ‘Downloads’ folder that either depicted minor children engaged in sexually explicit conduct, including one involving a toddler, or that had titles indicative of child pornography.”

Prosecutors said he attempted to delete the images and failed.

Alton “Buddy” Williams, Kirby’s former boss and chief at Live Oak Police Department was in shock after Kirby’s arrest three years ago.

“I have been in law enforcement for 30 years, and this has been the most difficult situation I have faced," Williams said at the time, according to WTXL in Midway, Florida. "A trusted friend, officer and protector of the public betrayed all facets of the job he swore to do. I realize that mistakes happen, but this was no mistake it was a choice, a choice that has impacted not only his agency, but his trusted friends, family, and community to include all brothers and sisters of the badge.”
