Did this guy want to be stopped? Why else would he apply for a LE position and disclose this info? Talk about odd and creepy. Those poor children.

California Highway Patrol applicant gets 30 years for child pornography charges

"An El Monte man whose arrest was triggered by his application to be a California Highway Patrol officer was sentenced today to 30 years behind bars for taking pornographic photos of a toddler he was previously charged with molesting.

The information sparking the prosecution of 31-year-old Christian Clint Hernandez came to light during the CHP's pre-employment background check. During the application process, Hernandez acknowledged on an employment questionnaire that he had accessed illegal pornography on the Internet and viewed illicit photos of a minor prior to applying for the CHP job..."

and

"....The CHP immediately began an investigation and searched Hernandez's home, where a sizeable collection of child porn in the form of 26 videos and 336 digital images was discovered on his computer..."

and

"...Hernandez sexually abused "multiple victims on multiple occasions," [Judge, Otis D.] Wright said, adding that the pictured children are "re-victimized every time the images are shared or copied.'' The slight, pasty-faced defendant, shackled at the waist and hands and wearing a green jail-issued windbreaker, showed no reaction....."

and

"....The defendant has said he himself was sexually abused as a child. In addition, his father and uncle were both convicted of sex offenses against children, the judge said today. Hernandez admitted spending at least four hours a day on the computer looking at images of child pornography and "chatting online," Judge Wright said.
