COLLIN COUNTY -- Joseph Garbarini, 29, was sentenced to 62 years in jail for sexually abusing his students at Hunt Elementary School in Plano Independent School District.

The former teacher was found guilty in August after a jury heard bizarre accusations about Garbarini's actions in the classroom.

The prosecution said the elementary school teacher placed children in diapers and make them use sippy cups. One parent said he touched her 5-year-old inappropriately.

Garbarini was a special education teacher for five years at Hunt Elementary before his resignation last May.
