A retired Philadelphia police inspector is going to prison for violating his sex offender parole when he grabbed and threatened an 8-year-old girl last year.

The Daily Times said 73-year-old Leo Haley was sentenced Wednesday in Delaware County Court to 3½ to 7 years behind bars.

In 2010, he was arrested for possessing and distributing child pornography and was sentenced in 2011 to home confinement and probation.

The violation that led to Wednesday's sentence stems from an October 2012 incident in which police said Haley grabbed an 8-year-old girl playing in front of her Philadelphia home and threatened to kill her.

Haley pleaded guilty last month in Philadelphia to a terroristic threats charge and received five years of probation, to run concurrent to his Delaware County sentence.
