COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. — A former Fort Carson soldier will spend at least the next three decades in prison for sexually abusing children.

Joseph Garcia pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of sex assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.

According to KRDO-TV, a detective testifying at the sentencing told the judge he found about 1,100 movies and pictures produced by Garcia.

Police were first alerted to Garcia’s crimes after Homeland Security investigators in Boston called and asked for help with help in a child porn case.

Garcia said in court that he hopes to get treatment in prison.
