PHOENIX (KPHO/KTVK) -

A former teacher at Morris K. Udall School in Phoenix was sentenced to 35 years in prison for sexual conduct with former students.

Carlos Pineda Borja, 41, was also sentenced to lifetime probation upon his release by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Sherry Stephens.

Borja pleaded guilty March 2 to sexual conduct with a minor, sexual abuse and child molestation.

At the time of his arrest on Jan. 23, 2014, Borja was still employed by the school, Phoenix police Sgt. Tommy Thompson said.

The incidents allegedly occurred in classrooms of the school at 3715 W. Roosevelt St. and during school hours in the 2012-13 school year.

They involved two girls who were 14 years old at the time, according to a court document.

The school has students from kindergarten to eighth grade.

Borja was originally booked into the Maricopa County Jail on two counts of sexual conduct with a minor, one count of molestation of a child and one count of sexual abuse.
