CALGARY - A Calgary high school teacher has pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.

Alberta Justice says Ryan Bostrom, who is 38, has been sentenced to six months in jail followed by three years of probation.

Bostrom was charged last year following a four-month investigation spurred by a tip from the national child exploitation centre.

At the time, investigators said they didn’t need to search Dr. EP Scarlett High School where Bostrom worked.

Officers did search his home and turned up a number of electronic devices that were analyzed.

Bostrom was suspended with pay when he was charged.

The Calgary Board of Education says that will continue until his employment ends at the end of May.
