CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — A South Texas man has been sentenced to nine years in prison for texting child pornography to a phone he wrongly thought belonged to a young co-worker.

A federal judge in Corpus Christi on Thursday sentenced 31-year-old Michael Anthony Almendarez. The Corpus Christi man in May pleaded guilty to distributing child pornography.

A man contacted officers last year after getting unsolicited child pornography images on his cellphone. The man previously loaned his phone to a minor female relative who worked with Almendarez at a restaurant.

Investigators say Almendarez at one point borrowed the cellphone from the girl — not knowing the device wasn’t hers. Almendarez later texted suggestive pictures to the cellphone, which by that time was back with the owner.

A phone later confiscated from Almendarez contained child porn.
