Ex-Virginia National Guard colonel sentenced for child porn

A former colonel in the Virginia National Guard has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for child pornography.

Fifty-four-year-old Gary Williamson of Lynchburg was sentenced in federal court Wednesday for receiving and distributing child pornography. He’ll be required to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.

Court records show Williamson possessed more than 2,000 images of child pornography, many that he distributed through a website and email.

Williamson had served as commander of the Virginia Army Guard Medical Command.
