A former Allegheny County Jail corrections officer was sentenced today to six years in prison for possession of child pornography, U.S. Attorney David J. Hickton announced.

Lawrence M. Winter, 45, of Moon, also faces 15 years of post-release probation and must pay $2,000 in restitution to a victim of pornographers known as "Vicky," according to Mr. Hickton's office.

Winter had thousands of photographs and hundreds of videos depicting sexual acts involving children, prosecutors said.

Assistant U. S. attorney Carolyn Bloch prosecuted the case, which was brought following an investigation by Moon police and Pennsylvania State Police.
