A judge sentenced former Army Col. Robert Rice to 12 years in prison Wednesday for receiving and distributing child pornography, prompting sobbing and apologies from Rice.

The 59-year-old former head of strategic war gaming for the Army said he was deeply ashamed of his actions, The Associated Press reports.

“When this began I didn’t see the human beings,” Rice said. “I came to realize that this is not a victimless crime. That each time an image is passed it renews the … emotional damage.”

He said he accepted responsibility for distributing the “very disgusting photos and images that should have not existed in the first place.”

Rice is already serving time in military prison.

Peter Goldberger, Rice’s defense lawyer, tried to push for a jail term of just five years, emphasizing that his possession and distribution of child porn was an “isolated case.”

“Here is someone who has 37-year career in the military,” Goldberger argued. “He was recognized by the Army as a leader and a teacher.”
