MANSFIELD (CBSDFW.COM) – A 62-year-old man who once was a special needs teacher in the Mansfield Independent School District will spend the next 60 years in federal prison for producing child pornography.

A district judge handed down the sentence to Kelly Dan Williams Jr. after he admitted sexually exploiting children. He pled guilty to two counts of Sexual Exploitation of a Child back in January.

Williams was indicted after someone at Mary Orr Intermediate School saw him performing a sex act on an 11-year-old male student and reported it. The incident took place in the school bathroom.

The Mansfield Police Department began their investigation and when they searched Williams’ home seized several electronic storage devices.  When forensic investigators looked at those devices they found video of Williams performing a sex act on a minor male — again in what appeared to be a school bathroom.

When Williams plead guilty he admitted to having sexual contact with a minor boy and recording several different incidents on video.

Williams 360 month prison sentence, for each count, will run consecutively.
