Ex-Katy ISD teacher sentenced to 30 years in child porn case


Federal prosecutors announced Tuesday that the most recent sentence for 38-year-old Stephen Wayne Sudduth of Sealy follows his guilty plea in September 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.

The two sentences will be served concurrently.

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 worked for the Hays consolidated school district near Austin and the Katy school district near Houston.
