Former teacher at the Elmira Christian Academy sentenced on child pornography charges

ELMIRA, N.Y. (18 News) - A former teacher at the Elmira Christian Academy was sentenced to 84 months in prison and 10 years of supervised release, for pornography charges, on Tuesday.

Howard Edward Brooks, 40, of Elmira, was convicted of receipt, attempted distribution, and four counts of possession of child pornography involving prepubescent minors. 

The former teacher was arrested in August of 2015 following the execution of a federal search warrant at his Elmira residence, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Craig R. Gestring, who handled the case. During that search, FBI agents found several photos and videos of children as young as toddlers being raped.
