Ex-air traffic controller sentenced for child porn

A former Whiteman Air Force Base air traffic controller has been sentenced to seven years and six months in prison for attempting to distribute child pornography.

The U.S. attorney's office in Kansas City says 27-year-old Michael Worrick was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty in March.

Worrick was arrested after an undercover FBI agent in Virginia ran a computer search for child pornography in 2008 and found some available on Worrick's personal computer.

Prosecutors say materials included a three-minute video showing a child about 10 years old tied up and forced to have sexual contact with an adult.

Worrick was in the Air Force at the time of the offense.
