Fenn’s computer contained images of young girls, and he admitted being interested in young girls between the ages of 9 and 14. He was a special education teacher at a local elementary school and also taught music classes in private homes. He faces a maximum of 30 years in prison. His sentencing is scheduled for this summer.

The investigation is part of Project Safe Childhood, a national initiative of the Department of Justice. The project aims to locate and prosecute those who create, receive and possess child pornography.
