A former Corpus Christi teacher has been sentenced to more than nine years in prison after being convicted of possessing child pornography.

It was back in September of last year when police were called to 41-year old Jesus Orta's home for a disturbance involving him and his brother. Police wound up finding the child porn on Orta's computer.

Orta pled guilty in November, and was sentenced on Tuesday to 110 months behind bars.

He was previously employed as a high school teacher and also worked for MHMR of Nueces County.
