Former Billings Teacher Charged with Child Pornography

Posted: Updated:

 A former West High Teacher has now been officially charged by the Federal government.

Scott James Nichols was the target of an FBI and Montana Internet Crimes Against Children Investigation.

Nichols appeared in federal court on charges of sexual exploitation, attempted sexual exploitation of children, distribution of child pornography and possession of child pornography. If convicted of the most serious charges, Nichols faces up to 30 years in prison.

Back in 2013, Nichols was a P.E. Teacher and girl's basketball coach, and the school system decided not to renew his contract at the end of that school year.
