Dieter David Palmer, a retired chief petty officer naval officer, has been senteced to more than 13 years in federal prison for possession of child pornography.

Palmer, 42, entered a guilty plea. When he was first charged, prosecutors said they had found more than 1,800 images and 36 videos of child porn on his computer.

Which makes some of his various postings around the net a bit creepy. His Facebook page is no longer up, but various links remain.

His self-description to a Katy photography group says he was a "40 year old male that has really started to enjoy taking pictures of so many different things."

A somewhat strange anti-parent site called "bratfree" found an FB status update before the page was taken down. it said "Isn't it funny how sometimes the things we want the most are the thing that we should have the least. We know this, but it still entices us sooo much......it becomes an addiction!!!!"

He also asked his FB friends if any of them wanted to go to the circus.

Palmer says on one site that he has three kids.
