Former principal faces sentencing on child porn charges

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A federal judge is set to sentence a former Kentucky high school principal convicted of child pornography after he was accused of uploading nude images of a student from a cellphone he confiscated.

Stephen Kyle Goodlett will be sentenced Thursday in Louisville. Goodlett pleaded guilty last year to transporting and possessing child pornography. The agreement calls for a nine-year sentence.

Goodlett was principal of LaRue County High School from 2013 until he was fired in October 2016 after being charged in state court with more than 60 counts of child pornography. Federal officials later charged him with transporting and possessing child porn. State charges are still pending.

In court documents, defense attorney Christopher Spedding said Goodlett is getting treatment for his addiction to pornography.
