Former youth director sentenced in child porn case

BEAUMONT, TX U.S. Attorney John Bales says a judge sentenced 53-year-old Patrick Sanders on Tuesday to 57 months in prison followed by 10 years of supervised release. Sanders pleaded guilty in April to possession of child pornography.

Sanders was arrested last year after law enforcement officers acting on a tip found images of child pornography on his computer at the Boys & Girls Club of Lufkin.

Boys & Girls Club of Deep East Texas Executive Director Jeff Woods says Sanders was fired shortly after his arrest.
