Md. ex-special ed teacher sentenced for possessing child porn

GREENBELT — A former special education teacher has sentenced to nearly 4 years in prison for possessing child pornography.

Sixty-one-year-old Peter Flynn of Silver Spring was sentenced Monday in federal court in Greenbelt.

According to his plea agreement, Flynn, a former special education teacher in Montgomery County, made files of child pornography available on a file-sharing network. Prosecutors say an undercover state trooper downloaded the files and police obtained a search warrant.

Authorities say two computers seized from Flynn’s home contained nearly 30,000 images and videos of child pornography.
