A former D.C. elementary school teacher who made the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted List for allegedly making and possessing child pornography was charged Thursday with three counts of production of child pornography, one count of misuse of a Social Security number, and one count of identity theft.
Toth was escorted from the campus of Beauvoir Elementary School on the campus of the National Cathedral in 2008 after another school employee reported finding images of child pornography on a school camera in Toth's possession. He fled before he could be arrested.
He was arrested in Nicaragua in April after five years on the run. The FBI last year added him to its “Ten Most Wanted” list to try to drum up attention to the case.
The production of child pornography charge carries a mandatory minimum penalty of 15 years and a statutory maximum of 30 years, the misuse of a Social Security number and identity theft charges each carry a maximum of five years in prison.
