KENNEWICK — A Washington substitute teacher who took photos of students and possessed child pornography has been sentenced to federal prison.
The Tri-City Herald reported that Michael S. Leavitt received a 10-year prison sentence Thursday.
Leavitt pleaded guilty in March to receiving child pornography.
Authorities said an elementary school student reported in October 2017 that he placed a cellphone under her skirt and took photographs during class.
Investigators later found more than 600 images of child pornography on Leavitt’s electronic devices.
Leavitt must register as a sex offender and be subject to court supervision for 10 years following his release.
