    Prosecutors estimated Elmquist's net worth at more than $13 million.

    A Dallas millionaire has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for attempting to possess Internet child pornography.

    Sixty-three-year-old Ronald E. Elmquist was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Kansas City.

    Elmquist previously was chief executive officer of QualServ Corp. in North Kansas City. He also was on the boards of directors of the Winn-Dixie and RadioShack corporations.

    U.S. District Judge Ortrie Smith also ordered that must serve a year of home confinement after his release, perform at least 120 hours of community service each month for three years and pay a $150,000 fine.

    Prosecutors estimated Elmquist's net worth at more than $13 million.

    The investigation opened in 2006 when a company technician found evidence of child pornography on Elmquist's work laptop.
