A former tri-state teacher is sentenced to 20 years in federal prison for possessing sexually explicit video of former students.

44-year-old Timothy C. Going is the former coach for the cross country team, the assistant coach for the track team, and a math teacher at Fairfield Community High School. Going was sentenced on a four-count indictment, charging him with three counts of Attempted Sexual Exploitation of Minors and one count of Possession of Visual Depictions of Minors Engaged in Sexually Explicit Conduct. 
Going was sentenced to 240 months (20 years) in federal prison, to be followed by 15 years of supervised release.
A Fairfield High School teacher has been arrested and suspended, after Illinois State Police say he secretly videotaped female students.

School officials released a letter today informing parents and students of the situation involving math teacher and track coach Timothy Going. The letter states earlier this week, custodians found a video recording device in the girl's high school locker room. The letter does not disclose how going is involved, but that a substitute teacher will take over his class the remainder of the year.

Going has been suspended with pay, pending completion of the investigation.
