Former Missouri teacher sentenced for child porn

The Scott County Sheriff's Department said deputies found an inappropriate picture of a girl in the Benton home of a 67-year-old man and 58-year-old woman during a search Tuesday.

The victim told investigators the man had taken the picture of her.

Officers also found ammunition, a shotgun and a spent shell casing on the property. KFVS-TV reports the man was convicted of a 1988 murder, so he can't possess a firearm.

As of Thursday morning, the man was being held on a $25,000 cash bond in Scott County Jail on charges of possessing child pornography and unlawful possession of a firearm.

The woman was facing a charge of felony possession of child pornography. She was released from custody with a court summons.
