Former Seminole County Teacher Gets 27 years for Child Porn

A former Seminole County high school teacher who pleaded guilty last September to enticement of a minor and production and receipt of child pornography was sentenced to 27 years in prison Thursday.

In addition, the 27-year-old must serve a life term of supervision following his release and register as a sex offender. He was also ordered to pay $7,500 in restitution.

The man was arrested in June after investigators say he exchanged sexually explicit pictures with a teenage girl.

The mother of the victim, who lives in Colorado, called Seminole County authorities in May when she said she discovered her daughter’s ongoing exchanges with the former teacher.

According to court documents, the man began trading explicit photos with the teenage girl in December in exchange for money, books, candy, clothes, women’s underwear and even special-effects makeup.

Investigators claim they were able to recover images of the victim and other children from the man’s computer.
