Former ICE chief in Florida sentenced to 70 months in prison on child pornography charge

A former top U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement official in South Florida has been sentenced to 70 months in prison on a federal child pornography charge.

Anthony Mangione faced a minimum of five years in prison after pleading guilty in July to using his home computer to receive and transmit images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Mangione ran ICE's South Florida operations from 2007 to 2011, including numerous child pornography investigations. He retired a few months after investigators searched his home and office computers in April 2011.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports (http://bitly.com/Th6Axr) that Mangione told U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra on Friday that he began having problems with drinking and prescription pills about three years ago.

Prosecutors wanted Marra to sentence Mangione to 87 months in prison.
