Former school security officer sentence for production of child porn

A federal judge sentenced a former security officer in the Birmingham City School System and a substitute bus driver for Shelby County Schools to 30 years in prison for producing child pornography.

Michael Wayne Wooten, 61, of Alabaster, was sentenced to prison and ordered to remain on supervised release for the rest of his life after completing the prison term.

Investigators identified 11 children who he exploited. Wooten pleaded guilty in January to producing child pornography.

Wooten, a retired Birmingham Police Officer, worked as a security officer for Birmingham City Schools from July 1997 until May 2011. Before his November arrest, Wooten had worked as a substitute bus driver in Shelby County Schools during the current school year.

Between August 2009 and April 2010, Wooten used an office at Dupuy Elementary School in Birmingham to take modeling photos of numerous juvenile girls, according to court records. After one of these modeling sessions, one of the victims told her parents of potentially inappropriate conduct by Wooten.

A subsequent search of Wooten's residence yielded multiple computers containing child pornography images, including images produced by Wooten depicting several victims, between four and nine years of age, engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
