The teacher, 35-year-old Justin Coleman, of Falls Church, admitted to viewing and downloading pornography for “a long time,” authorities said. He stated that he preferred to view images of young girls between 5- and 12-years-old, authorities said.

School officials said Coleman is on administrative leave from his teaching job at John Adams Elementary.

He cleared a background check when he was hired in 2005.

He faced a federal Judge this afternoon and was ordered held without bond.

Special Agent John Torres of Immigration and Customs Enforcement says ICE was tipped to investigate Coleman by international authorities.

They arrested Coleman Wednesday night at his Falls Church home.

“We placed a great deal of emphasis on this particular lead because of the person's job, in other words as a school teacher, he's in a position of public trust,” Torres said.

Anyone with information is urged to call authorities at 1-866-347-2423.
