Former Kentucky teacher pleads guilty to child porn charges

CATLETTSBURG, Ky. A former school teacher has pleaded guilty to multiple counts of possession of child porn.

The Kentucky Attorney General says Thomas Sellers, 41, of Catlettsburg pleaded guilty to seven counts during a hearing in Boyd County Circuit Court last month.

Sellers is expected to receive a 10-year prison sentence when he returns to court later this month.

The charges against Sellers stem from a 2012 undercover operation by the Ohio Attorney General's Office, which identified a computer and internet account, belonging to Sellers, that possessed images of child sexual exploitation.

The investigation was then turned over to Kentucky's Cybercrimes Unit, which executed a search at Sellers' home, and found 455 images and 325 videos of child porn, according to Ky. Attorney General Jack Conway.
