Ex-teacher on FBI's Most Wanted List gets 25 years for child porn
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A former Washington schoolteacher who was put on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List for producing child pornography was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Tuesday.
Eric Toth, 32, had pleaded guilty to pornography charges stemming from photographs and videos that he took of children while working as a camp counselor in Wisconsin, as a teacher at the capital's private Beauvoir School and at a Maryland home.
U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras sentenced Toth to 25 years in prison and lifetime supervision after his release, the U.S. Attorney's office said in a statement.
Toth fled the Washington area in 2008 as authorities investigated allegations that he had kept sexually explicit images of children on a camera at the Beauvoir School.
Toth was put on the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Ten Most Wanted List in 2012. Police arrested him in Nicaragua in April 2013, and he was extradited to the United States.
Toth pleaded guilty in December to three counts of production of child pornography and to one count each of misuse of a Social Security number and identity theft.
