PENSACOLA, Fla. - A federal judge has sentenced a former teacher for receiving porn.   Jeffrey Richards, 63, is going to spend six years in federal prison.

U.S. Attorney Pamela Marsh said he received porn over a 10 year period.  She said he downloaded more than 100 thousand images and videos of children. 

Marsh said Richards also received an audio file of a young female who was engaged in graphic sexual acts with her "teacher" in exchange for a favorable grade.  Marsh says the female was portraying a student. 

Upon his release from prison, Richards will have 10 years of supervised release and must also register as a sex offender. 

Richards has been a teacher in both Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.
