LAREDO, Texas (AP) Federal prosecutors say a veteran South Texas teacher has been charged with swapping child pornography online.

Investigators say 53-year-old Jorge Valadez remains in custody without bond pending a detention hearing Thursday in Laredo. A criminal complaint filed Monday says Valadez has been charged with receipt and distribution of child pornography.

School administrators Tuesday didn't immediately update the employment status of Valadez, who taught English at United South High School in Laredo. He's worked for the United Independent School District since 1994.

Authorities say Valadez allegedly received and distributed videos depicting children in sexually explicit conduct from a computer at his home. Search warrants were carried out Friday night and Valadez was arrested.
