BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A former substitute teacher at Bentonville High School has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for possessing child pornography.
The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://bit.ly/2lMlzDF) reports 33-year-old Jacob Howard pleaded guilty Monday for distributing, possessing or viewing matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child. He'll be required to register as a sex offender and follow a seven-year suspended sentence after his release from prison.
Court documents say Howard was arrested last year after an investigation by the Benton County Sheriff's Office. Through a warrant, detectives were able to trace a computer to Howard's address.
The documents also say detectives seized two laptops after searching Howard's home.
A probable cause affidavit says Howard's computer contained still images and videos of sexual conduct involving unknown victims ranging from 10- to 14-years-old.
