Former Vt. teacher to plead guilty to porn charges

Posted: Updated:

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A former Vermont Academy teacher has agreed to plead guilty to charges of producing and possessing child pornography found on his computer.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports Brant Nelson signed a plea agreement and is expected to appear in court Monday.

Federal court documents say the 48-year-old Nelson will spend a minimum of 15 years in prison if the plea deal is accepted.

Nelson was arrested in January 2012 after state police received information from administrators at the Saxons River school that he possessed child pornography.

Court records say Nelson confirmed to police he had child pornography on his computer. Prosecutors say he also said he admitted to having a relationship with a minor for more than three years and posted photos of her on a Russian pornography website.
