Tuesday, a federal jury in Nebraska convicted the former acting director of cyber security at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in a child pornography case.

Timothy DeFoggi, 56, is the sixth individual to be convicted as part of an ongoing investigation targeting three child pornography websites.

The three sites were run by a single administrator, who has since been convicted in the District of Nebraska.

Prosecutors say DeFoggi was a website for roughly nine months, at which point the FBI took down the site.

"Through the website, DeFoggi accessed child pornography, solicited child pornography from other members, and exchanged private messages with other members where he expressed an interest in the violent rape and murder of children," reads a news release from the US Attorney's Office.

Sentencing is set for November 7th.
