McKINNEY (AP) - A former Dallas-area kindergarten teacher has been sentenced to 62 years in prison for sexual misconduct with students that included an apparent diaper fetish.

A judge in McKinney on Thursday sentenced 29-year-old Joseph Peter Garbarini. A jury in August convicted the former Plano Independent School District educator of continuous sex abuse of a child and sexual performance by a child.

Investigators say Garbarini was teaching at Hunt Elementary School in Murphy when allegations surfaced that he pretended to put diapers on girls in class and gave them pacifiers.

Two girls had alleged sexual-related misconduct by Garbarini, who resigned last year amid the investigation.
