TACOMA, Wash. — A former Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldier has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for producing child pornography.
The News Tribune in Tacoma reports John F. Rindt, 50, was sentenced Friday. The former U.S. Army chief warrant officer pleaded guilty to the charge last year.
According to court records, Rindt was was living in Lacey in 2012 when he took video of himself molesting a young sleeping child.
The sentence will run at the same time as a 10-year term he was given by a military tribunal. A judge also ordered Rindt to pay for the child’s counseling, and to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.
An Army officer who held a top-secret security clearance shared nude photos of a teenage girl online and discussed plans to drug the girl and have sex with her, according to federal court records unsealed Monday.
