Laredo teacher arrested on child porn charges

A high school teacher is behind bars after being accused of downloading and sharing child pornography videos.

Federal agents arrested 53-year-old Jorge Valadez on child porn charges over the weekend.

The Laredo United South High School English teacher appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Guillermo R. Garcia on Monday morning.

Federal prosecutors allege that Valadez used a peer-to-peer network to share images and videos of child pornography.

Judge Garcia denied bond for the jailed teacher until a Thursday morning hearing.

If convicted, Valadez faces a minimum of five and up to 40 years in federal prison as well as a maximum fine of $250,000.
