TUCSON, Ariz. - A Douglas man who used to work as a corrections officer was sentenced to 60 years in prison in a child porn case.

Josue Eduardo Cota, 33, of Douglas, Ariz., will have lifetime supervised release after the sentence, and must register as a sex offender.

In February 2017, Homeland Security Investigations were investigating a case in Canada and tracked the distribution of child sex abuse videos to Cota, who had been producing and distributing the videos.

Cota pleaded guilty to eight counts of production of child pornography.
