GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Former University of Florida broadcaster Steve Babik has been sentenced to more than 12 years in prison for child pornography.

A federal judge in Gainesville sentenced Babik on Friday to 151 months in prison followed by a lifetime of supervised release. He pleaded guilty in April to one count of receipt and distribution of child pornography.

Prosecutors say that between June 2008 and November 2009, the 50-year-old Babik offered known child pornography files for distribution 326 times on his home computer. Babik's computer revealed a significant volume of children engaging in sexual acts with other children and with adults.

Babik, a longtime sideline reporter for football games, was fired in November. He had worked at the school since 1987.
