(Newser) – A federal judge yesterday sentenced a former Fox News producer to 10 years in prison for possession of child pornography. Prosecutors in Washington had recommended the 10-year term, citing Aaron Bruns' prior conviction on similar charges. Authorities charged Bruns in February with sharing pornography on a social networking website.

Bruns pleaded guilty in May to possession of child pornography. Bruns covered Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign in 2008 and later was a general producer in Washington, covering politics.
