Teacher once on FBI list charged with child porn

The Washington Times Daily - - Metro -

A for­mer pri­vate school teacher added to the FBI’s list of most wanted fugi­tives dur­ing five years on the run has been charged in fed­eral court with pro­duc­ing child pornog­ra­phy.

Pros­e­cu­tors filed a crim­i­nal in­for­ma­tion Thurs­day charg­ing Eric Justin Toth with child pornog­ra­phy, iden­tity theft and mis­use of a So­cial Se­cu­rity num­ber.

An in­for­ma­tion is a charg­ing doc­u­ment that typ­i­cally sig­ni­fies that a guilty plea is near. Both sides have said that they were ne­go­ti­at­ing a plea agree­ment. A U.S. at­tor­ney’s of­fice spokesman de­clined to com­ment Thurs­day.

Mr. Toth was cap­tured in Nicaragua in April and re­turned to the Dis­trict to face fed­eral charges.

He had been on the run since 2008, when he was fired from his teach­ing job at Beau­voir, a pri­vate school for pre-kinder­garten through third grade at the Na­tional Cathe­dral, af­ter be­ing con­fronted about im­ages of child pornog­ra­phy.
