There is one less name on the FBI's most wanted list. A District teacher accused of child pornography will be in court this afternoon after a manhunt that lasted five years.
Eric Justin Toth fled D.C. in 2008 after pornographic images of one of his third grade students were discovered on his school-issued camera.
"The FBI placed the former 3rd grade teacher on its most wanted list last year because investigators figured he would continue to prey on children," says Ron Machen, U.S. Attorney for the District.
The five-year manhunt ended in Nicaragua over the weekend, where Toth was living under an assumed name.
Valerie Parlave, assistant director in charge of the FBI, says a tip let them to the fugitive.
Toth faces charges in both D.C. and Maryland, but prosecutors won't say how many victims there are in the case or if Toth had accomplices. They do say the investigation remains open at FBI headquarters.
