A former area school teacher was sentenced last week, nearly a year after he was arrested on charges stemming from child pornography. Robert Alan Thompson was sentenced January 29th to 15 years in prison and 15 years of supervised release for online enticement of a minor and production of child pornography. As previously reported, law enforcement officials executed a search warrant on Thompson’s LaRue county home last April. After seizing his phone, officials found evidence of explicit images of underage males, including those of a former student, who was 17 at the time. The investigation into Thompson began as officials investigated Matthew Lyons, who was previously charged last year for several offenses related to child exploitation.
