LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A former parochial high school teacher and assistant football coach has pleaded guilty to child exploitation in federal court in Louisville.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 33-year-old Patrick Newman pleaded guilty Wednesday to 16 counts of producing child pornography and one count each of online enticement of a minor, transporting child pornography and possessing child pornography.

Prosecutors say the charges involved 16 boys ages 12 to 17 from Colorado, Indiana, Kentucky, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, Utah and the United Kingdom.

The investigation began this year after authorities received a tip from Twitter about material uploaded to a video sharing website.

Newman has been in custody since he was charged in June. He was fired from Trinity High School the next day.

Sentencing is Dec. 16.
