Teacher ordered to trial in child pornography case
Logan Fontenelle Middle School teacher Roger Jaeger has been ordered to district court for trial, accused of possession of child pornography. He waived his preliminary hearing Tuesday and bond was set at $250,000.
Jaeger has been ordered to have no contact with minors, including his own children.
The case surfaced when police were contacted by a computer repair store in Bellevue. Officers were called to Affordable Computer Repair on Franklin Street regarding possible child pornography on a customer's computer.
A search warrant was executed on the device and police said that resulted in "hundreds of suspected child pornography images being found." Police said they had no reason to believe that any photos they found were of students.
Bellevue Police officers were at the school on the morning of Friday, February 8, to arrest the seventh-grade science teacher. Jaeger was escorted out of the building without incident, according to a letter sent out to school families by Principal Doug Schaefer.
Jaeger is currently on administrative leave.
Police continue going through the seized computer. Additional charges could potentially follow.
