SNYDER, Texas - A former Snyder ISD substitute teacher who pleaded guilty to lying to an FBI agent during a child porn investigation will spend 57 months in prison.
Malcolm Crawford, 61, was sentenced Friday and will also have to serve three years of supervised release after his prison term, the Snyder Daily News reported.
Crawford was indicted in April for making a false statement to a government agent and pleaded guilty in May. According to an indictment, Crawford was being investigated for possession of child porn while working as a substitute teacher at Snyder High School. Records show he also taught at Northeast Elementary before his retirement in 2012.
He lied to the FBI about having an iPad on campus, court documents say. School officials said they believe Crawford brought his personal iPad to the campus and was looking at material he had downloaded off campus.
Crawford denied the allegation and told an FBI agent he didn't have an iPad on any of the three days he worked at the school in March. The agent then showed a picture of Crawford holding an iPad. The FBI believes Crawford threw the device away after Snyder police questioned him in March, according to court documents.
