GALVESTON, Texas (AP) - A Southeast Texas man has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison in a child pornography investigation sparked by a police officer in Germany.

Prosecutors in Galveston say 50-year-old Phillip Edward Baker of Angleton was sentenced Monday after being convicted of receipt and possession of child pornography. Baker was also convicted of accessing a website with intent to view child pornography.

The investigation began when a German police officer investigating child pornography used online information that led to Baker. Details were turned over to officers in Texas.

Federal agents in February 2010 searched Baker's home and seized two computers, CDs and photos. Investigators located nearly 6,600 images of child porn.

Further details on the German police officer weren't immediately released.
