TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A former Florida elementary school employee is heading to federal prison for nine years for receiving and distributing child pornography.

The U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Florida said in a release that 44-year-old Adam Arnold was sentenced Tuesday. Arnold was working as an information technology technician at a Tallahassee-area school when he was arrested.

An Internet service provider alerted authorities that illegal images were being sent to and from Arnold’s home computer. A search warrant revealed approximately 15,000 child pornography images hidden on the computer.

In addition to nine years in prison U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle imposed a life term of supervised release. After he is released from prison Arnold must register as a sex offender and must submit to searches of his computer.
