NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a former New Orleans school teacher has pleaded guilty to transportation of child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite said in a news release 45-year-old Don Francis Jr., of Metairie, admitted Wednesday to possessing 5,378 images and 362 videos showing the sexual victimization of children.

Prosecutors said he admitted that he was sexually attracted to children and had searched for child pornography since 1997.

Francis faces a mandatory 15-year sentence under his plea agreement. U.S. District Judge Sarah Vance set sentencing for Aug. 3.
