HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A former Deep Run High School teacher was sentenced to five years in prison with three suspended after pleading guilty to an indecent liberties charge.

Benjamin Clark Brittain, 29, pleaded guilty in February. Prosecutors said Brittain sent a naked picture of himself to one of his students.

The message was sent through Twitter in early 2016, and one of the photos showed Brittain with his genitals exposed, according to the Henrico assistant commonwealth's attorney.
