Share this post

A former teacher at Morton High School in Hammond has been sentenced to twelve years in prison. In June, 28-year-old Jon Erik Lilly of Cedar Lake pleaded guilty to two counts of receiving child pornography. At his sentencing hearing in Hammond Federal Court Thursday, Lilly apologized to his victims and his family. In a joint Hammond Police Department and Homeland Security Investigation announced earlier this year, the former math teacher was accused of asking underage female students to text sexually explicit pictures of themselves to him by cellphone.
