Former KBI official sentenced on sex exploitation

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Former KBI administrator Kyle Smith has been given three years of intensive supervised probation rather than prison after pleading guilty in a child pornography case in March.

Smith, 58, must also register as a sex offender for 25 years and continue in a treatment program under the sentence he received Wednesday in Shawnee County District Court. 
 
Police arrested him after they found a sexually explicit photo on his computer. An email containing the picture was traced to Smith's KBI account after an agency secretary discovered the image last fall and notified her superiors.

He was charged in Topeka’s Shawnee County where he also faced charges of trying to destroy evidence, but the court dropped those charges.
