BAKER — A 75-year-old man charged last year with producing and possessing child pornography after sexual images of a young family member were found on his computer has been sentenced to 10 years of tightly regulated probation after entering a no contest plea, according to Okaloosa County Circuit Court records.

Ben Wilkerson Kimbrough of Baker entered the plea June 21, and sentencing documents signed by Judge Michael Flowers were filed on July 3, court records show.

Specifically, Kimbrough pleaded no contest to four counts of possession of obscene material and possession of a photo of a sexual performance by a child.

Kimbrough had been fired from his position as an engineer at Eglin Air Force Base in August 2016 after authorities discovered he was using his government computer to search for “exploitative” images, according to an Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest report filed at the time. Search terms included “prepubescent,” which he searched for 930 times, “pedophile” and “disk clean up,” the report said.

In the course of an Air Force investigation, Kimbrough admitted to taking nude photos of a young female family member. He agreed to allow federal agents to search his computer, and the images found there led to the issuance of a federal search warrant of his home in Baker. Investigators found four photos of the child, which all appeared to be taken on the same day, the report said.

Kimbrough told a sheriff’s investigator he had entered the bathroom when the child was taking a bath and took photos of her, including close-ups of her genitals. Kimbrough also admitted going back and looking at the photos “once or twice,” the report said.

Kimbrough was charged with four counts of producing photographs of a sexual performance by a child and four counts of possession of those photos.

In addition to routine terms of probation — such as remaining in a specified place, not associating with criminals, and not possessing a firearm — Kimbrough's probation includes a number of special provisions related to his crimes. Kimbrough's whereabouts will be electronically monitored and he cannot have any contact, direct or indirect, with victims of his crimes or other minors.

He also is subject to a 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew, with those hours subject to adjustment if future situations warrant the change. He also is prohibited from living within 1,000 feet of schools, child care facilities or other places where children congregate.

Also according to court documents, Kimbrough can't volunteer or work for pay at any place where children congregate. He is also subject to an annual polygraph examination, and he cannot have a post office box.

Under the terms of the judge's order, Kimbrough was notified that his probation could be modified or rescinded. Also under the order, Kimbrough was notified that if he violates any of the terms of his probation, he is subject to arrest and the possibility of having his probation revoked.
