Former Alabama kindergarten teacher was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release, for producing child pornography between 1997 and 1998.
Charles Mark McCormack, 54, of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, pleaded guilty on November 27, 2017, to one count of production of child pornography before Chief U.S. District Judge Karon O. Bowdre of the Northern District of Alabama.
According to admissions made in connection with his guilty plea, between August 1, 1997, and Oct. 15, 1998, ex-kindergarten teacher used a six-year-old girl to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing visual depictions of the conduct, by videotaping young girl urinating in a bathroom in his Colbert County, Alabama.
During a May 2016 search of McCormack’s residence, law enforcement discovered images of nude and topless females believed to constitute child pornography and a suitcase containing young girl’s panties. McCormack was employed as a kindergarten teacher at the time of the search.
