Band Instructor Guilty Of Sex Crimes


A former band instructor at Tulsa Union Public Schools has been sentenced to 13 years in federal prison.

32-year-old James Wilson was sentenced after pleading guilty in June to one count of receiving child pornography.

Wilson admitted exchanging sexually explicit photos with a 12-year-old girl in Canada.

As part of the plea agreement, prosecutors dropped charges of sexual exploitation of a child, possession of child pornography and transfer of obscene materials to a minor.

Wilson was suspended from his job at Union Public Schools and later resigned.
