Ex-sub guilty of sex abuse

— A former Sand Springs substitute teacher has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to molesting a student, child porn charges and providing alcohol to a minor. Court records show Steven Beard, 38, pleaded guilty Monday to 11 counts of lewd molestation and single counts of manufacturing child pornography, possessing child pornography and providing alcohol to a minor. Beard was charged in August after a 14-year-old student's mother reported to police that she found inappropriate text messages from Beard to her daughter. Court records show Beard asked for sex offender treatment and that his sentence will be reviewed for possible modifications in January 2014.
