September 10, 2019 07:26 PM

Mathew Herbert was sentenced Tuesday in Schenectady County Court.

He will spend nine years in state prison for having sex with a female less than 17 years of age in Glenville.


The investigation began when officials with the Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake School District found sexually explicit emails from Herbert on the child's computer.

Herbert left the area but was located in Pennsylvania in February.
