A local firefighter has been arrested for allegedly exchanging nude photos with a 14-year-old girl.

A former firefighter jailed for possession of child pornography has received 10 years' probation, court records show.

Ruperto Martinez Jr, 49, was arrested in 2016 and accused of exchanging nude pictures with a 14-year-old in Iowa.

The investigation began after the teen's mother discovered the images on her daughter's cell phone and alerted the sheriff's office in Iowa City, Iowa.

During the investigation, authorities learned the images were taken at Martinez's southeast Houston home and at Fire Station 93, where he worked.
