PHOENIX -- A former fifth grade teacher was sentenced to eight years in federal prison Monday for receipt of child pornography.

Victor Scott McPeak Jr., 38, of Surprise was sentenced earlier this year to 10 years in prison for sexual exploitation of a minor. He is to serve the two terms consecutively, followed by lifetime supervised release.

Police began investigating McPeak after it was brought to their attention that he had inappropriately touched two young girls while working as a teacher at the Arizona Charter Academy. A subsequent search of his home revealed numerous images and videos of child pornography.
