LEAGUE CITY — A League City man convicted of taking and sharing lewd photos of a 4-year-old girl was sentenced Tuesday to 40 years in prison.

Donald Post, 69, pleaded guilty to charges of possession of child pornography, and the production and distribution of child pornography.

Prosecutors said Post, a registered sex offender who was placed on probation in 2004 after being convicted of the aggravated sexual assault of a child, also wrote about encounters with the underage girl. Post shared that writing online, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Post was sentenced by U.S. Circuit Judge Gregg Costa and will serve his sentence at a federal prison, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Post was arrested in August after an FBI investigation connected him to illicit material online, according to a criminal affidavit.
