FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A former North Texas high school journalism teacher has been indicted on two counts of production of child pornography.

Gregory Bogomol of Fort Worth was indicted Wednesday.

Federal prosecutors in Fort Worth say the indictment involves two alleged incidents in April with different minors. Bogomol was teaching at Denton High School but resigned shortly before being arrested in May.

Investigators say Bogomol, who remains in custody, was charged after the parents of a 15-year-old Louisiana boy reported he received suggestive cellphone messages from someone who pretended to be a girl. The teen responded by providing a nude photo of himself but refused to send more images.

Details weren’t immediately available about the second case.

If convicted, Bogomol faces up to 30 years in prison on each count.
