HS teacher accused of having child pornography
METAIRIE- School officials say a 43-year-old Grace King High School teacher accused of child pornography has been placed on indefinite leave from his job.
The Jefferson Parish public school system disclosed the employment status of Walter Sologaistoa, of Kenner, but did not say whether the Spanish teacher is still being paid.
The Times-Picayune reports Sologaistoa was booked Friday with 10 counts of distributing child pornography.
Investigators say they found a number of files containing incriminating images on Sologaistoa's home computer. They did not say whether the children in the images were his students.
It was unclear whether Sologaistoa has an attorney.
