MIAMI – A judge sentenced a 24-year-old Florida man who used to work as a preschool teacher to 120 years in prison on Tuesday for producing child porn, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

Trevor Hruby pleaded guilty to four counts of production of child pornography after investigators found that he had committed the crimes at A Child’s Dream Preschool in Gainesville, according to prosecutors.

Detectives learned Hruby’s sexually abused and exploited four children who were under his care at the preschool between Dec. 1, 2020, and Sept. 15, 2021, according to the June 28 indictment.

Detectives with the Gainesville Police Department and FBI Special Agents from Jacksonville worked together on the case. The judge also ordered Hruby to pay $142,500 in restitution to provide counseling to the victims in the case.

FBI agents urge anyone with information about online child sexual exploitation to call 1-800-843-5678 or the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-866-305-4673.
