    Losada is already serving a 10-year sentence for similar charges in Palm Beach County. He was convicted of 52 counts of possession, some of the images reportedly including babies and toddlers.

    During the trial, jurors were shown images of Losada watching child pornography as well as a recorded phone call between him and a undercover detective discussing sexual relations with young boys and girls.

    Losada insisted he didn't knowingly send or receive child porn. But the jury didn't believe him and neither did the judge who handed down the sentence. Frank Quintero, a criminal defense attorney, followed the case closely.

    "The sentence was affected by the testimony the judge probably found to be not credible," Quintero said.
