Teacher in Springfield suburb faces child porn charges


ROGERSVILLE, Mo. (AP) - 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 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.

Logan-Rogersville district officials say McCroskey has worked at the district
since 2004.
