SACRAMENTO -- A former Stockton police officer is facing up to 20 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to child pornography charges.
Federal prosecutors say John Krivokapich pleaded guilty Thursday to receiving child pornography.
Krivokapich was arrested after the mother of a 15-year-old girl notified Stockton police in 2008 that he had been exchanging pornographic emails with her daughter.
Prosecutors say Krivokapich had left the department in 2001, but Stockton police recognized him as a former officer.
The 43-year-old Krivokapich is due to be sentenced on September 8.
Besides a prison term, he's also facing a lifetime of supervised release when he's released from prison, as well as a $250,000 fine.
