INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) — A former teacher in Independence has pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography.
Federal prosecutors say 44-year-old Jason Pink pleaded guilty Wednesday to possessing child pornography while he was a teacher at Fort Osage High School in 2014.
Prosecutors say investigators found evidence that Pink bought the pornography on several occasions from a movie production company located outside the U.S.
U.S. Postal Inspectors found several DVDs and a thumb drive that contained child pornography at Pink’s home.
Pink faces up to 10 years in federal prison without parole.
