A former Beaverton teacher who was convicted of possessing child pornography and then skipped out on sentencing is due for another court date in September to hear how long he'll serve.

The Oregonian reports 37-year-old Logan Storm pleaded guilty Wednesday to failing to appear at sentencing on Jan. 30.

The day before that, he had been found guilty. U.S. District Judge Ancer Haggerty allowed him to remain out of custody.

Prosecutors say Storm cut off his electronic monitoring bracelet and fled, eventually surfacing in Mexico. He was returned to Oregon in April.

Prosecutors say he faces at least seven years in prison for the pornography charge.

They want up to five years more for failing to appear. Storm's lawyer argues for no more than an additional year.
