GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- A former White County Sheriff's deputy was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison Tuesday for producing child pornography.

Christopher Thomas Davis pleaded guilty to taking photos of a 7-year-old girl engaging in sexually explicit conduct. According to federal prosecutors, the photos were taken inside his Dahlonega home in the summer of 2009, and additional images of child pornography were found during a search there in August 2011.

"That the defendant committed this offense while serving as a law enforcement officer makes this crime that much more atrocious," U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said in a statement.

Davis was sentenced to 15 years of supervised release following his prison term. He will also have to register as a sex offender.
