A former analyst with the Drug Enforcement Administration was sentenced Monday to more than five years in federal prison for possessing child pornography on his government-issued laptop.
Matthew Barnes, 34, of Overland Park, was an analyst with the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area program. He pleaded guilty to one count and was sentenced to 63 months. A detective with the Overland Park Police Department was able to download the child pornography from the laptop, which was found to be located at the DEA’s office in Overland Park and was assigned to Barnes as part of his work.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children identified 19 images from nine known series of child porn on the computer.
