(KSL News) -- A former primary teacher convicted of sexually abusing his students was sentenced today.

Aaron Montoya will serve a prison sentence of five years to life for aggravated sexual abuse of a child. The judge also ordered Montoya to pay nearly 14-hundred dollars in restitution.

He was found guilty last month. He inappropriately touched three girls, ages five and six, while teaching a Sunday school class for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Montoya's family members say they're grateful for the justice system.

Jared Montoya, Defendant's Brother: "A justice system that allows restitution to be made and that allows people to change their ways and to become a productive member of society, that I know my brother can and that he will some day."

Montoya faces additional molestation charges next month.
