JUNCTION CITY, KS (AP) — A 24-year-old Kansas woman has been sentenced to five years in federal prison for having child pornography on her phone.

Kayla Michelle Simpson, of Junction City, was sentenced Thursday for possessing child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said in a news release that law enforcement officers seized Simpson's phone in September 2016.

Prosecutors say the phone contained images of Simpson having sex with a juvenile female.

The Wichita Eagle reports Simpson was previously convicted of a child sex crime in Geary County. State prison records show she was convicted in 2015 of indecent solicitation of a child. She was in prison after an April 2017 probation violation then was paroled in February 2018.
