Stafford admitted to downloading at least 300 images of child pornography — some of which included children between ages 4 and 6 — using a peer to peer file sharing program.
Stafford, worked with children from first through twelfth grade, acknowledged that he received the images from September of 2007 until December of 2007.
The case began when an undercover investigation in Houston revealed that Stafford was downloading child pornography. He will be sentenced on March 9.
