WASHINGTON — A 65-year-old Information Technology Program manager for the FBI was sentenced Friday  in Alexandria, Va., to 3 years and 10 months in prison for possessing child pornography, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Samuel I. Kaplan, 65, of Gainesville, Va., pled guilty to possessing child porn on June 3. Court records show Kaplan, who worked for the FBI in Chantilly, Va., used the FBI’s computer network to “facilitate sexually explicit communications.”

Authorities said Kaplan had on his home computer between 10 to 20 images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
