CAMP CASEY, South Korea — A soldier was found guilty Friday and sentenced to 16 months in prison for possessing child pornography.

Pfc. Joseph M. Robillard, 19, of the 55th Military Police Company, also received a bad-conduct discharge from military Judge Col. Donna Wright at the Camp Casey courtroom.

Robillard possessed five films of children as young as 9 forced to engage in sex acts with each other and with adults.

"These are real children," prosecutor Capt. James Richardson said following the trial. "They were victims at some point, and his crime perpetuates that cycle."

Robillard’s roommate discovered the porn on the computer and notified his commander, according to court documents.

Two of the videos contained known images of child victims reported to The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

On Nov. 16, Robillard admitted to investigators that he had downloaded the videos and knew it was wrong, according to court documents.
