HOUSTON (AP) — A Navy retiree in Texas has been sentenced to more than 13 years in prison in a child pornography investigation.

Prosecutors say 42-year-old Dieter David Palmer was sentenced Thursday in Houston. The retired chief petty officer in December pleaded guilty to receipt of child pornography.

The investigation began as a Justice Department operation targeting commercial child pornography websites.

Military investigators helped federal prosecutors track current or former Navy and Marine personnel identified as buying membership in child porn sites.

Palmer was interviewed last March. Records show weeks earlier he received more than 230 sexually explicit images of minors.

Palmer had been free on bond but was taken into custody following Thursday’s sentencing.
