WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - The former headmaster of an elite prep school founded by members of the du Pont family was sentenced to 50 years in prison for dealing in child pornography.
Christopher Wheeler was convicted in December on 25 counts of dealing child porn.
Wheeler is a former headmaster at Tower Hill school in Wilmington, whose graduates include DuPont Co. CEO Ellen Kullman, U.S. Sen. Chris Coons and television personality Dr. Oz.
Wheeler waived his right to a jury trial after the judge denied a defense motion to suppress evidence seized by police.
