A high school teacher has been arrested and charged with possessing child pornography, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said Thursday.

David Valesano Jr., 50, is a math teacher at Newsome High School, according to the school's website.

Detectives said they seized four computers and "digital media items" from Valesano's home. They said computer forensics revealed files showing children approximately 8 to 13 years old engaged in sexual activity.

The arrest came after a two-month long investigation, the sheriff's office said.

Valesano is charged with 20 counts of possession of child pornography.
