Former Officer Christopher Bowersox Caught Accessing Porn

A former Bakersfield police officer convicted of possession of child pornography was sentenced Monday to three months in custody after he violated his supervised release conditions.

Christopher Bowersox was first arrested in February 2010, accused of possessing and distributing child pornography. The FBI stated he had child pornography images on his home computer and took part in online chats in which he discussed raping, mutilating and killing young boys.

He resigned from the Bakersfield Police Department in early 2010, a few months after the child pornography investigation was launched. Bowersox had headed up the police anti-graffiti unit for a time.

Last year, Bowersox, who was released from prison, violated his parole by accessing pornography on the Internet.

Monday, the federal judge in Fresno also re-imposed a term of supervision for 117 months, during which Bowersox will be required to register as a sex offender, and his access to minors, computers and the Internet will be restricted.
