ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A former private school teacher has pleaded guilty to federal child sex charges and faces up to a 250-year prison sentence.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (https://bit.ly/1vkpLaL ) reports 34-year-old Matthew Graziotti changed his plea on Thursday in Orlando. Charges include production, distribution, receipt and possession of child pornography.

He was fired from Warner Christian School in South Daytona where he had worked for about nine years. He taught grades five through eight and was director of the school’s summer day camp.

Graziotti pleaded not guilty in July.

Seven of the charges carry a maximum of 30 years in prison and two have a maximum of 20 years.

South Daytona police Lt. Dan Dietrich says Graziotti sexually molested one or more children during an unauthorized sleepover last summer at Warner Christian Academy.
