WASHINGTON (AP) — A former Washington private school teacher who was captured in Nicaragua after a year on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted” fugitives list has been sentenced to 25 years in prison in a child pornography case.

Eric Toth was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Washington.

A prosecutor had asked he be sentenced to 30 years. Toth’s lawyer said he should spend 22 years in prison.

Toth fled Washington in 2008 after images of child pornography were found on a camera he had used while a teacher at Beauvoir, a private elementary school.

The FBI added Toth to its Most Wanted list in 2012. He filled a vacancy created by Osama bin Laden’s death.
