Former Webster County Middle School teacher Lucia Jenkins was sentenced to 60 months (five years) in federal prison on Tuesday in US Federal Court in Owensboro. She entered a guilty plea on two charges of distributing and receiving child porn in May as part of a plea deal. That deal included the dropping of a third charge, which included at least one image that involved a “prepubescent minor or a minor who had not attained 12 years of age."
Authorities have reported that she will have until September 16 to surrender herself to U.S. Marshals.
She still faces drug charges in Webster County court.
