A former Lubbock Avalanche Journal employee will spend the next twelve years in prison. Friday, Judge Sam Cummings sentenced George John Maslovar to 151 months in prison.

In September, the 54 year old pleaded guilty to one count of interstate receipt of child pornography. Maslovar must also register as a sex offender and serve a lifetime of supervised release.

According to court documents, Maslovar admits that for several years he collected and traded images and video of child pornography over the Internet.

This case was investigated through Project Safe Childhood. It's a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse. For more information about Project Safe Childhood, click here.
