ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A former special education teacher at a Fairfax County elementary school has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for possessing child pornography depicting preteen girls.

Twenty-seven-year-old Robert Fenn of Herndon had been a teacher at Poplar Tree Elementary in Chantilly prior to his arrest last year.

A jury convicted Fenn earlier this year in federal court in Alexandria on one count each of receipt and possession of child pornography.

Authorities say Fenn was identified after an Italian police investigation into computer files associated with the domain name “liberalmorality.com” tracked back to computer in Fenn’s home.

Fenn admitted to investigators that he was drawn to girls between the ages of 9 and 14.

None of the pornographic images was related to any students at the school.
