Sex offender sentenced to 19 years for child porn

EAST ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A registered sex offender from Missouri has been ordered to spend more than 19 years in federal prison on child-pornography counts for inappropriate images found on his cell phone after he was caught shoplifting girls' underwear.

Thirty-two-year-old Daniel Scalf of St. Louis was sentenced Friday in East St. Louis. He pleaded guilty in June to charges of possessing and transporting child pornography.

After Scalf was arrested in January at a Collinsville Walmart for stealing girls' underwear, investigators found at least two images of child pornography on his cell phone.

Authorities say Scalf has a long record of sex-related arrests dating to 1998, when he pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a mentally disabled person.

A judge on Friday also ordered Scalf to spend the rest of his life on post-prison supervision.
