ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.—A former New Mexico youth football league president and his wife have been sentenced to prison on child pornography convictions.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says 43-year-old Frederick Gonzales was sentenced Monday to just over eight years in prison while 37-year-old Carey Gonzales to three years in prison.

They were arrested in January after a four-month investigation.

At the time, Frederick Gonzales was the incoming president of the Young America Football League for the Albuquerque area and Carey Gonzales worked as a teacher's assistant in the Albuquerque school system.

Both were removed from those positions.

Authorities say a search of the couple's home produced several computers and digital media that contained child porn images. Prosecutors say couple admitted to viewing the images.

The couple pleaded guilty under plea agreements.
