Former teacher found guilty on all counts

LAS VEGAS - A jury has found former Las Vegas kindergarten teacher Melvyn Sprowson guilty on all charges.

Sprowson, 48, was found guilty of six charges including kidnapping, child abuse and child porn for his relationship with a 16-year-old girl. He kept the girl in his apartment for two months telling the jury they were in love and he was afraid that she would kill herself if he took her home.

He met the girl through a Craigslist posting in 2013.

Sprowson faces the possibility of life in prison.
