ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) -- A jury has found a former central Kentucky teacher guilty on 19 of 29 charges involving a student.

The News-Enterprise reports 47-year-old Anthony Durrant, who used to teacher at J.T. Alton Middle School in Vine Grove, did not convey any emotion Monday night as the verdict was read.

He was found guilty of using a minor in a sexual performance, using electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual or other prohibited activities and possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor. Jurors acquitted him of 10 other counts including sex abuse.

According to the newspaper, he was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the crimes.

Prosecutor Teresa Logsdon said the case shows that prison sentences await those convicted of crimes against children.
