OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Two former teachers convicted of sex crimes no longer have state teaching numbers or certificates.

The state Board of Education Thursday revoked the teaching number of former Tulsa Public Schools teacher Son Minh Rockstroh, whose teaching certificate had already expired.

The former Memorial High School arts teacher was convicted of rape by instrumentation and sentenced to eight years in prison. He resigned after his arrest.

Police reported that his contact with the victim had no apparent connection to his employment with the school district.

The board also revoked the teaching certificate and teaching number of former Durant Public Schools teacher Todd Dean Sisk.

Sisk was convicted of possession of child pornography, traveling to another state to engage in a sexual act with a minor and receiving child pornography.
