PHOENIX - A judge sentenced John Todorich to 40 years in prison on Tuesday.

Todorich was initially accused of molesting a student in 2010, but the case was dropped.

Phoenix police arrested the Arroyo Elementary School teacher just two years later on suspicion of luring minors for sex.

Todorich later pleaded guilty to three counts of luring a minor for sexual exploitation, transporting persons for purposes of prostitution, sexual conduct with a minor, child prostitution, attempt to commit child prostitution and attempt to commit luring a minor for sexual exploitation.
