A high school substitute teacher, arrested in February, who was found with child pornography has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Greg Paul Parr, 49, on Friday was sentenced to prison along with lifetime probation upon release by an Arizona judge.

Back in February, a thumb drive with explicit images of underage sexual acts was found at a Valley school, and the drive belonged to Parr. 

Parr was a substitute teacher for the Glendale Union High School District. 

School administration initially found the USB drive on school grounds at Cortez High School on February 19, and turned over the drive to Phoenix police, according to police. The Arizona Crimes Against Children task force were able to identify Parr as the owner of the drive after his name and several images of his wife and cat were found on the drive.

The school added Parr had taught in the classroom where the drive was found the day before.

The drive contained graphic images of child pornography, as well as cartoons of a man, whom police believe resembles Parr, engaging in sexual acts with children, according to police. 

Parr admitted his knowledge of the drive upon police’s arrival to his home the following day, and attempted to shut down his home computer before further questioning, police documents stated.
