Ex-San Diego school counselor sentenced for child porn

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - A former San Diego elementary school counselor has been sentenced to nearly four years in federal prison for possessing child pornography.

The San Diego Union-Tribune says Thomas Ceglarek was sentenced Monday. Prosecutors say he had two computers that contained child porn.

The 58-year-old Ceglarek was hired in 1997 as a counselor at Foster Elementary School. He was placed on leave after his arrest and was fired after pleading guilty in March to two child porn counts.

He also pleaded guilty to perjury for falsely claiming he was unemployed last year in order to obtain a court-appointed lawyer. At the time, he was still employed by the school district and was making $70,000 a year.
