AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — An ex-kindergarten teacher already sentenced to 60 years in a Texas child pornography case has pleaded guilty in an international exploitation investigation.
Federal prosecutors in Houston on Wednesday said Stephen Wayne Sudduth of Sealy (SEE'-lee) pleaded guilty to two counts of production of child pornography. The case involves images of children in a classroom when he taught in the Caribbean island of Curacao (koor-uh-SOW').
Sudduth faces up to 30 years in prison when he's sentenced in November.
Sudduth last month pleaded guilty to Texas charges of child pornography promotion. Investigators in 2009 arrested Sudduth after finding more than 58,000 illicit images and videos on computers at his Houston-area home.
Sudduth also was with the Hays Consolidated Independent School District near Austin and the Katy Independent School District near Houston.
