A retired Orange County Transportation Authority bus driver pleaded guilty today to possession of child pornography and was immediately sentenced to one year in jail.

Richard Raoul Contreras, 63, of Garden Grove, who was arrested in October, was also placed on three years of probation.

A search of Contreras' home in May 2012 led investigators to allege he possessed hundreds of videos and images of child pornography on his home computer, as well as CDs and DVDs, according to the Orange County District Attorney's Office.

Contreras was also accused of keeping CDs and DVDs with child pornography on them in his work locker, according to prosecutors.

Contreras retired in 2012, according to Joel Zlotnik of OCTA.
