A Cobb County father was sentenced after sending a pornographic picture of his 1-year-old daughter to an undercover police officer.
Corey Charles Plunkett, 27, of Marietta, will serve 12 years in federal prison for the crime.
Court documents say in September 2013, the undercover officer was contacted by Plunkett in a chat room known for attracting pedophiles.
Plunkett reportedly said he had a 1-year-old daughter and asked if she was too young for sexual activity. He also said he wanted his daughter to perform oral sex. The father then sent the undercover officer a photo of himself, a non-pornographic one of his daughter and then a pornographic one of the child later that day.
"Distribution of child pornography is in and of itself a heinous crime," said United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates. "This case is all the more disturbing because the victim was the defendant's 1-year-old daughter. We will continue to aggressively prosecute those who exploit our children."
Once Plunkett completes his time in prison, he will be on supervised release for life and be required to register as a sex offender.
