A former U.S. Army soldier has been sentenced to 17 years in prison for making child porn using a 2-year-old child.

The man served on active duty as a soldier stationed in Fort Bliss at the time of the crime.

Steven George Sperling, age 36, went before a U.S. district court judge in El Paso, Texas, last week.

The judge sentenced the former soldier to 17 years in prison.

Sperling pleaded guilty to one count of production of child pornography on July 14, 2021, information released by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Texas revealed.

The case began in July 2019 when agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigations found a group that utilized a social media application to discuss and share pornographic material dealing with underage victims, as Brietbart reported.

In one of the conversations in the group, authorities learned that Sperling wanted to trade images and claimed to have access to a two-year-old child.

An undercover agent began communicating with Sperling and said that he wanted to trade images, court documents revealed.

The agent communicated with another user who shared images and a video of the two-year-old that had been taken by Sperling.

The FBI office in El Paso worked with U.S. Army Military Police, who arrested Sperling and helped carry out a search of his house.

During questioning by authorities, Sperling told agents that he had seen child porn involving children of various ages from “babies to teens.”

However, the soldier claimed that he had not recorded or sent images of the two-year-old.

After further questioning, Sperling admitted to authorities that he had.

U.S. Attorney Ashley C. Huff said in a prepared statement:

“Prosecuting dangerous sexual predators that exploit the innocence of children and cause unspeakable harm is always going to be a top priority for our office."
