Washington teacher arrested on child porn charges

Posted: Updated:
TENINO, WA (KPTV) -

A Washington elementary school teacher is accused of ordering child pornography DVDs from an international company.

James Mobley, 46, was arrested Wednesday and charged with receipt and possession of child pornography. He is a teacher at Tenino Elementary School north of Centralia.

Mobley is also active as a volunteer in the Boy Scouts and as a private tutor, according to investigators.

The U.S. Postal Inspections Service has been investigating an international company that is accused of distributing child porn through the mail and via download to personal computers.

In May 2011, foreign law enforcement officers executed a search of the business and seized hundreds of DVDs and business records.

Authorities said those records showed Mobley purchased child pornography from the company on multiple occasions between February 2009 and January 2011.

Officers seized a computer from his home, as well as DVDs showing child pornography.

Mobley is behind bars pending a detention hearing Jan. 22.

Parents concerned about any of their children having contact with Mobley are asked to call Tenino police at 360-264-2626.
