WASHINGTON — A District of Columbia pediatrician has been sentenced to a year and a half in prison for possessing images of child pornography.

Robert Paul Dickey was sentenced in U.S. District Court on Tuesday after pleading guilty in September.

Authorities says they recovered 132 images of child pornography while serving a search warrant at Dickey’s home last spring. He’s been in custody since his arrest in May.

The 74-year-old Dickey faces 10 years of supervised release after he gets out of prison and will also be required to register as a sex offender.

U.S. Attorney Ron Machen says the case is troubling. He calls Dickey a “beloved pediatrician” who downloaded child pornography in the same home where he treated patients.
