A Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldier who pleaded guilty to charges he possessed and distributed child pornography was sentenced Friday to three years in prison.
Robert Bruce Campbell, 38, was convicted in July of two charges of first-degree and one count of second-degree possession of child pornography.
Campbell, a decorated veteran, was brought home from Afghanistan in September 2013 after Puyallup Tribal police were told by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that he had exchanged emails that contained child pornography.
Campbell later told Pierce County sheriff’s detectives he used his iPhone to download, distribute and look at child pornography.
