Former biology teacher, postal worker sentenced to 15 years in prison for 2nd child porn conviction

SPRINGFIELD — A former Franklin County biology teacher and U.S. Postal Service worker was sentenced Monday to 15 years in federal prison for his second conviction on child pornography charges in two decades.

Brian Cooper, 65, of Turners Falls, on Jan. 22 pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to four counts of distribution of child pornography, six counts of receipt of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

A search of Cooper’s home in October of 2019 unearthed thousands of child pornography files stored on a tablet computer and multiple thumb drives. At the time of the search, Cooper was arrested on state court charges and has been detained since, according to U.S. Attorney Rachael Rollins’ office.
