By The Associated Press
NEW HAVEN, CT (AP) -
A former teacher at East Hampton Middle School has been sentenced to more than 10 years in prison for possession of child pornography.
Federal prosecutors say 32-year-old Richard Hendricks of Ashford bought Internet access to live sex shows involving children that originated in the Philippines.
Hendricks was sentenced Monday in federal court in New Haven to 10 years and one month, followed by five years of supervised release.
The former computer teacher has been detained since his arrest in June 2011. He pleaded guilty in January 2012 to one count of receipt of child pornography.
Prosecutors said Hendricks used his computer to receive more than 600 images and 50 movie files of child pornography, including images of children younger than 12 years old and images portraying sadistic or violent conduct.
