LAREDO, Texas (AP) - A former high school teacher in South Texas has been sentenced to more than four years in prison for possessing child pornography.

Federal prosecutors announced the sentence Wednesday for 53-year-old Jorge Valadez, who taught in Laredo. Once Valadez completes his prison term, he must serve 10 years of supervised release. He will also be required to register as a sex offender.

Valadez pleaded guilty Nov. 13 to possessing four videos of child pornography.

Prosecutors say Valadez was sharing the pornography with others over a computer network. An investigator was able to download and examine videos traced to Valadez. Authorities later searched his home and other property. He admitted to downloading the videos over five years and accumulating images of child pornography.
