A former South Philadelphia special education teacher will spend 10 to 20 years behind bars. Joshua Uhrich was sentenced this morning. Prosecutors say he contacted a 14-year-old girl through her MySpace page.

He admitted to engaging in sex with her and pleaded guilty back in May.

They met at Uhrich's Allentown apartment, and engaged in sexual activity for two weeks before others found out.
