A former Warren County preschool owner was sentenced to an additional 17 years in prison Thursday on federal child pornography charges, bringing his total sentence to almost 50 years in prison.
John Foster, 37, of Deerfield Township, already is serving a 30-year sentence on rape charges involving two girls who were not students at his school. Foster and his wife, Cindy, operated the Primrose School in Hamilton Township in a franchise agreement since 2008.
Investigators discovered the child pornography, downloaded between 2004 and 2007, when they searched Foster’s home in July, after he was charged with abusing two children in Warren County.
Authorities have said the rape and sexual battery charges involve abuse that occurred on multiple occasions from 1999 to 2003.
The victim was less than 13 years old, according to a court document. One incident allegedly happened at Foster’s Deerfield Township home.
Authorities have said no students at the school, which now is closed, were molested.
The pornography charges were based on the discovery of more than 6,000 images and 300 videos of child pornography that were discovered on his computer by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court and will be deported to his native England after serving his time.
