WAXAHACHIE, Texas (AP) — A former agriculture science teacher at a high school in North Texas has been sentenced to five years in prison for online solicitation of male students.

A judge in Waxahachie on Tuesday sentenced 28-year-old Joshua Allen Jaggears of Burleson.

The former teacher at Ennis High School earlier pleaded guilty to online solicitation of a minor, improper relations between an educator and a student and sexual performance by a child. Jaggears was sentenced to five concurrent five-year prison terms.

Prosecutors say Jaggears requested sexually explicit cellphone photos of several students. A parent happened to overhear the boys talking about Jaggears, who was then arrested in September 2011.

Investigators say some students provided online photos to the teacher but police found no evidence of sexual contact with the boys.
