LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE/WKYT) - A Kentucky man who volunteered at a high school has pleaded guilty to posing as a young woman in text messages to get underage boys to send him sexually explicit photos and videos.

A judge has ordered Bobby Cassady, 32, to surrender to federal custody on July 31. He’s been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Cassady had been a mentor and character coach at Danville High School. Court records also show that he was also a family friend of at least one of the juvenile male victims. Investigators found at least 99 images of child pornography on his electronic devices.

After his release from prison, authorities say Cassady will be on supervised release for the rest of his life. He’s also ordered to pay $15,000 in restitution.
