LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) – A Coast Guard chief warrant officer who pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography has been sentenced to five years in prison.

U.S. District Judge Patricia Minaldi in Lake Charles also on Thursday sentenced 50-year-old Michael Robert Gleason, of Houston, to 10 years of supervised release following his prison term.

Prosecutors say Gleason, a former Lake Charles resident, had downloaded hundreds of images of child pornography onto computers that investigators seized from his home in August 2011.

Gleason pleaded guilty in July.
