A former Fairfax County elementary school teacher was convicted Thursday on child pornography charges.

Robert Fenn, 27, who taught special education at Popular Tree Elementary School in Chantilly and gave private music lessons to children in their homes, faces five to 30 years in prison, according to federal prosecutors in Alexandria. Fenn's sentencing is scheduled for June 21.

Fenn was arrested at the Chantilly school in June, and has been in custody ever since.

Authorities found child pornography of girls between the ages of about 9 and 14 on his home computer.

School officials said none of the school computers or children were involved.
