BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — A former Kentucky substitute teacher will spend 10 years behind bars after pleading guilty to child pornography charges.

The Daily News of Bowling Green reports (http://bit.ly/2bCpHD7) a U.S. District judge sentenced 50-year-old Leon W. Lussier of Bowling Green on Wednesday on possessing and transporting child pornography charges.

Court records show Lussier was also fined $50,000 and ordered to pay $15,000 to victims in a case involving the sexual abuse of children and the sharing of online child pornography across national borders, including in Canada.

Records state authorities traced an online user account to a computer belonging to Lussier in Bowling Green, and found more than 800 videos stored on it and 11 DVDs.

At the time, Lussier was employed as a substitute teacher in the Bowling Green Independent School District.
