The former chief financial officer and chief operating officer of the Ohio Department of Education will spend six months in jail and five years under court supervision for possessing child porn.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, 48-year-old John T. Childs was sentenced for possessing 11 images of child porn on his home computer.

He pleaded guilty on April 29 to one charge of possession of child porn.

He will also be required to register as a sex offender and have monitoring software installed on his computer.

10 Investigates revealed earlier this year that questionable activity also was conducted on Child’s work computer, including images of porn found on his work laptop.

Officials said the ODE sent Childs a letter terminating him in late 2012.

As part of the Friday sentencing, Childs will also have to undergo mental health and sex offender treatment, as directed by his probation officer.
