SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — The former police commissioner in the Puerto Rican capital of San Juan has been sentenced to prison in a child pornography case.

Hilton Cordero Rosario was given a sentence of 10 years as part of a plea deal. Cordero apologized as he appeared in a jail uniform in federal court in San Juan. The judge also sentenced him Monday to 15 years of probation and said he will be required to register as a sex offender upon his release.

Cordero had been facing 20 felony counts and 30 years in prison when he entered a guilty plea to a single count in February as part of the deal. He had persuaded an underage girl in his neighborhood to pose for explicit photos.
