POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A man is facing charges after police say they found images of child pornography.

Steven Schwartz, 53, a teacher at Fishkill Plains Elementary School, is accused of having images of child pornography on his personal devices.

An investigation was launched at the end of January after police say a teacher in the Wappingers Central School District made inappropriate comments to students.

Schwartz was charged with six counts of possession of a sexual performance by a child.

He was arraigned and remanded to Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $20,000 cash bail or $40,000 bond.

Schwartz is due back in court next week.
