A state employee and a former leader with the SEIU Local 1000 union was sentenced today to 25 years in state prison after he pleaded no contest to child molestation, possession of child pornography and manufacturing child pornography, according to the Sacramento County District Attorney's office.

The case against 50-year-old Jaime Enrique Feliciano, who works for the Department of Insurance, began with a tip in September 2008, the DA's office announced in a news release. Authorities searched Feliciano's Sacramento residence and found thousands of child pornography images on DVDs and in Internet downloads, which Feliciano viewed on his personal computer and a laptop owned by the Department of Insurance, the release states. Also on the computers, authorities found home-made child pornography showing Feliciano molesting a young female, the release states.

Feliciano had dissuaded the girl and her mother from talking to authorities, but the girl revealed the abuse after Sacramento County sheriff's detectives identified her, according to the release.

Feliciano had been convicted of child molestation in 1993 and was a registered sex offender, the release states. In 2006, he was convicted for failing to register.

Feliciano is a former president of one of SEIU's 50 district labor councils, which are located across the state. (An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified Feliciano's position with the union.)

Judge Laurie Earl handed down the 25-year sentence in the latest case.
