FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) — You knew the story wouldn’t end well when it began with a 57-year-old man wandering around his Fort Worth workplace — naked.

A judge in Fort Worth recently sentenced Kenneth Clyde Jackson to a total of 18 years in prison.

During the trial prosecutors presented evidence that on July 3, 2010, police officers found Jackson at the Regal Plastics warehouse, off East Loop 820.

Officers were not only interested in why Jackson was at the warehouse, but why it was he didn’t have on any clothes. When questioned, Jackson said he was at the warehouse catching up on work and was naked because he was hot.

When officers took Jackson back to his workstation, presumably to get his clothes, they saw child pornography pulled up on his computer.

“His job description didn’t include prancing around naked while looking at child pornography,” Assistant District Attorney Martin Purselley said in a press release statement.

When police ordered Jackson to present some type of identification he told them it could be found in the glove compartment of his car. Officers not only found the ID, the glove box also contained a bag of what appeared to be marijuana.

Jackson apparently learned little from the July arrest since he was taken into custody three months later for standing in his garage, naked as children rode by on their bicycles.

Jackson was sentenced to 10 years in prison for possessing child pornography and eight years in prison for indecent exposure. The sentences were ‘stacked’, meaning the defendant cannot begin to serve the sentence in a subsequent conviction until the sentence in the preceding conviction is completed.
