A former official with the Florida Department of Children and Families has been sentenced to 24 years in prison for child pornography. Al Zimmerman formerly worked for the agency that was charged or responsible for protecting Florida children. In fact, Mr. Zimmerman was the spokesperson for this agency. It is truly sad that a man put in this position of trust and responsibility would be accused, arrested, and convicted of child pornography charges for having and paying for nude photographs of boys. One of the boys was even under the care of the Department of Children and Families. Mr. Zimmerman pleaded guilty to these charges. Mr. Zimmerman was hired into the wrong position. His arrest and conviction truly was a public relations nightmare for the Department of Children and Families.
