California man admits downloading images to government computer while on job

A former NASA engineer today was sentenced to five years in federal prison for possessing child pornography on his government-owned computer.

Christopher Burt Wiltsee, 57, of Morgan Hill, Calif., was also ordered to pay a $25,000 fine, be on supervised release for seven years following his release from prison and to register as a sex offender.

He had pleaded guilty on March 19 and was remanded into custody on March 19.

The U.S. Attorney's Office reports that Wiltsee was working as an engineer at NASA's Ames Research Center when he was charged in in Moffett Field, Calif., in June 2005. He is no longer employed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

According to Wiltsee's plea agreement, he admitted that while he was working at NASA, he used his government computer to download images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Wiltsee admitted to possessing more than 600 images of child pornography.

U.S. District Court Judge Jeremy Fogel handed down the sentence in U.S. District Court in San Jose on Wednesday.

The investigation was conducted by the NASA's Office of the Inspector General.
