COLUMBIA, S.C.-- A 48-year-old high school teacher from Aiken has pleaded guilty to distributing child pornography and attempting to entice what he thought was a 13-year-old boy for sex.

Federal prosecutors say Timothy Brumit was actually talking to a police officer in Virginia over the Internet in January.

Authorities say Brumit sent more than 600 pieces of child pornography to the officer.

Prosecutors say Brumit also said he wanted to bring the boy to South Carolina to have sex and asked if he would leave his family to be with him.

Brumit faces 10 years to life in prison on the enticement charge and five years to 20 years in prison on the pornography count.

    Why has this story NOT been followed up by the news media? It is a very sad case and I know a lot of information about the Brumit family. Mr. Brumit was to be sentenced on June 6th of this month in Virginia; yet there has been nothing more about the case anywhere on the net.

    I think life is a little extreme. I know he was trying to entice a child, but he didn't actually do anything, YET. I think about 25-30 years would suffice.

    First to Paul, it should not matter how much our teachers are getting paid.. to even think about a child in a sexual way is wrong!!! Your comment doesn't speak much for you.. Children are precious, they should NOT be thought of sexually, they should not even be thinking of sex themselves at 13. Shame on all who are into child porn, and shame on all the teachers out there who have ever thought of a student in a sexual way!!!
