Former music teacher pleads guilty to producing child pornography

COLUMBUS (WCMH)-- Former Bishop Watterson music teacher, Brian Sze, pleaded guilty Friday to production of child pornography.

According to court documents, the investigation began in July 2015 after a tip was reported to officials which indicated that Sze, 35, of Seattle, had engaged in sexually suggestive communications with a minor.  The investigation revealed that Sze had also engaged in illicit sexual contact with a minor and caused recordings of the child engaged in sexual activity to be recorded.

"Sze's actions are particularly heinous because he used his position as an educator to victimize a minor," Assistant U.S. Attorney Heather A. Hill said.

Sze pleaded guilty to one count of production of child pornography, and faces 15 to 30 years in prison.
