FERGUS FALLS—A former Fergus Falls substitute teacher will spend five years in prison for distributing child pornography.

According to the U.S. District Attorney of Minnesota's office 39-year-old Joshua Noble is accused of possessing over 200 images depicting sexual abuse of children, including those of infants and toddlers.

Undercover law enforcement officers observed Noble using an online messaging service to get those images.

Noble was sentenced earlier this week after pleading guilty to one count of distribution of child pornography.

Noble was employed as a substitute in Fergus Falls for 15 years.
