EL PASO, Texas (AP) - —
A former computer science teacher in West Texas caught with hundreds of child pornography images faces up to
20 years in prison.
Prosecutors in El Paso say 46-year-old Joachim Rudolf Hees (HAYS) remains in custody after pleading guilty Thursday to receipt of child porn.
Sentencing has been set for March 5 for Hees, who formerly taught in the Canutillo Independent School District.
FBI agents in late 2008 searched the man's home and seized three computers. Experts found nearly 600 images of child porn on the devices.
Hees had been the computer literacy teacher at Canutillo Middle School. He later resigned.
