A former fourth-grade teacher in Alexandria is sentenced to 30 years in prison for producing child pornography after admitting he victimized students around the globe, according to the Associated Press.

Thirty-six-year-old Justin Coleman of Falls Church videotaped himself with two girls, who were unaware of what they were being told to do, engaging in sexually explicit conduct. Those girls were not his students.

He also admitted altering existing images of child pornography to depict the faces of students he taught during stints in Italy, Japan and at John Adams Elementary in Alexandria, where he taught until earlier this year.

U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride said there is no evidence Coleman had sexual contact with any of his students.

The 30-year term was in line with prosecutors' request and slightly higher than federal sentencing guidelines.
