A former Clear Creek High School teacher has been sentenced to six years in prison for possession of child pornography.
Kenneth John Fontenot, 52, pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of possession of child pornography and was sentenced as part of a plea agreement, court records show. Fontenot will be required to register as a sex offender after his release.
Agents with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security arrested Fontenot in March 2019 at his home, officials said at the time.
The investigation found Fontenot was sharing inappropriate pictures of children on the internet, officials said. Investigators discovered more than 1,105 videos and 187,689 pictures.
None of the images or videos appeared to involve any of Fontenot’s former students, however, officials said.
