A Hockaday School teacher was arrested on child pornography charges last week. Jason Baldwin, 28, was arrested after admitting to federal investigators that he had paid for lewd videos of underage boys engaging in sexual acts, Dallas Morning News reports. He has not been tried, convicted, or entered a guilty plea.

He is charged with receipt of child pornography. Federal investigators told the Morning News Baldwin used a PayPal account linked to Hockaday’s northwest Dallas mailing address to purchase explicit videos. An early childhood development curriculum coordinator, Baldwin has been employed by the school since 2014.

According to an email sent to parents, students and alumni, Hockday has suspended Baldwin pending investigation and banned him from campus. He previously worked at Dallas’ Greenhill School and Parish Episcopal School’s summer camp.
