OGDEN, Utah -- A former science teacher and scout leader recently convicted of sexual exploitation of a minor is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday.

Kenneth Prince, 61, is accused of sexual abuse while he was a junior high school teacher in the '80s. When South Ogden Police investigated the claims, they said they found explicit images on a computer in his home.

Officers said Prince admitted to the abuse, but back in his initial court appearance his lawyer denied the charges. Prince was later convicted of sexual exploitation of a minor.

After being charged last year, police said several other people came forward accusing Prince of sexually abusing them.

FOX 13's Scott McKane will be at the sentencing Wednesday. Continue to watch FOX 13 News and for the latest updates.
