Former Portland school employee to serve 22 years for sexual exploitation

A former Portland school employee has been sentenced to 22 years in prison followed by 15 years of supervised release for sexual exploitation of a minor.

34-year-old Benjamin Conroy pleaded guilty last August to sexually exploiting a young student at an elementary school. According to court documents, he also sent explicit images of the abuse to a third party, who notified Portland Police.

Conroy worked as a special education technician. He was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Portland.
