Former substitute teacher gets 5 years in child porn case

ELYRIA — Former Sheffield-Sheffield Lake Schools substitute teacher William Emery was sentenced Monday to five years in federal prison for child pornography, according to the office of U.S. Attorney for Northern Ohio Steven Dettelbach.

Emery, who last worked for the district in the 2010-11 school year, pleaded guilty in May to charges of distributing child pornography.

The investigation into Emery determined that his computer and an external hard drive contained child pornography, according to court filings by prosecutors.

School officials have said there were no complaints to the district regarding Emery while he was working as a substitute teacher.

    Wait, why did he not simply erase the hard drive, like the IRS?

    Could have walked away free, like Lois Lerner.
