Police Officer Gets 15 Years In Prison For Child Porn

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A former North Texas police officer who pleaded guilty to child pornography charges has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison.

A judge in Fort Worth on Tuesday sentenced 47-year-old Phillip Woolery of Crowley. The ex-Grand Prairie police officer in March pleaded guilty to production of child pornography and possession of child pornography.

Woolery, who also was fined $5,000, had been a Grapevine officer for 17 years when he was arrested last October at home. He was fired in November.

Postal Service inspectors connected Woolery’s home address and email to the 2010 purchase of a DVD set with child porn images. Prosecutors say Woolery in 2011 recorded a boy engaging in sexually explicit conduct in a pool. Woolery also checked out online child porn websites.
