FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A former North Texas high school journalism teacher faces up to 60 years in federal prison for soliciting teens for child pornography.

Gregory Bogomol (BOH’-guh-mahl) of Fort Worth pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of production of child pornography.

The 38-year-old Bogomol, who formerly taught at Denton High School, faces sentencing Feb. 12 in Fort Worth.

The investigation began after the parents of a 15-year-old Louisiana boy reported he received suggestive cellphone messages from someone pretending to be a girl.

Prosecutors say Bogomol in April coerced a boy into sending a sexually explicit image of himself. Bogomol a few days later coerced another child to also send a suggestive image.

Bogomol resigned his teaching position shortly before being arrested in May.
