Va. Man, Former Preschool Teacher Gets 14 Years for Producing Child Porn

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A former preschool teacher has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for producing child pornography by filming his sexual abuse of 5-year-old students in Japan.

Fifty-four-year-old James Manring of Fredericksburg pleaded guilty in January in federal court in Alexandria. Manring admitted filming himself abusing students while he was a teacher at a Japanese preschool, the Remei Hoikuen School, from 1996 to 1999.

Prosecutors say Manring brought DVD’s depicting the abuse of at least seven different boys and girls when he returned to the U.S.

Prosecutors say Manring taught preschool in Bethesda, Md., before his November arrest.

Prosecutors had sought a sentence of more than 17 years at Friday’s sentencing. The defense requested the mandatory minimum of 10 years.
