Robert Moody (Martinsville City Jail)

HENRY Co., Va. (WSET) - A former Henry County Public Schools teacher pleaded guilty of possessing child pornography.

Robert Moody pleaded in court Wednesday.

The court found him guilty of 20 counts of possessing child porn as a first offense.

Moody was originally indicted on one count of possessing child porn as a first offense and 39 counts of possessing child porn as a second offense.

The prosecution made a motion to amend those indictments, and the defense didn't object.

Officials said the charges stem from an alleged incident in May 2015.

Moody will be sentenced March 15.

He worked as a music teacher from 2006 to 2016 at Mt. Olivet Elementary School, according to the Commonwealth's Attorney.
