An English teacher at a suburban high school near Springfield is facing charges alleging he received and distributed child pornography.
The Springfield News-Leader reports that Logan-Rogersville High School teacher Matthew McCroskey was charged Thursday.
A criminal complaint says a Missouri State Highway Patrol investigation in November identified McCroskey's computer as a possible source of two child pornography images on the internet. The complaint says law enforcement found several images of child pornography on the 50-year-old's computer Wednesday after searching his Springfield home.
McCroskey's defense attorney, Dee Wampler, didn't immediately return a phone message Friday from the Associated Press.
