A former foster parent and Greenbrier volunteer firefighter was sentenced to four years in jail Monday for possession of child pornography.


Following a Dec. 27 bench trial before Faulkner County Circuit Judge Charles E. Clawson, Daniel Klosky, 38, was found guilty Jan. 16 on 38 counts of the possession and distribution of child pornography, with each count carrying a possibility of 10 years in prison.


Each of the 38 counts represents a picture or video found on Klosky’s computer.


At the time of his arrest in 2009, Klosky was a foster parent of two children, ages 8 and 17.


Klosky has served around six months in jail, and could be eligible for parole as early as April.


Prosecutor Cody Hiland declined comment Wednesday, as Klosky is set to return to court in April, where he will face rape charges stemming from a 2009 incident involving a boy in his early teens.


Defense attorney John Wesley Hall has mantained his client’s innocence, saying an appeal will be forthcoming.
