A former teacher in New York City has been sentenced for crimes involving the corruption of young students.

Christian Toro has been sentenced to 70 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to fooling students into helping him build bombs. 

The 28-year-old Toro and his twin brother Tyler, were both busted after a federal investigation revealed that they had been paying students to help them dissemble fireworks in order to stockpile the explosive materials. 

Prosecutors even revealed that Toro had coerced one of the students to call in a bomb threat in December 2017. 

Fortunately the would-be terrorist was brought to justice before he could carry out any planned attack. 

“Today’s sentence serves as a message that building and stockpiling destructive devices are grave offenses in and of themselves,” said U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman in a statement. “Thanks to the outstanding work of the Joint Terrorism Task Force in eliminating this destructive threat in its nascent stages, Christian Toro and his brother were apprehended before they could carry out any attack with the device they were building.”
