Eric Toth is a former teacher at a D.C. private school.

A former D.C. teacher who was on the FBI's most wanted list faces charges of child pornography in multiple jurisdictions.

Lawyers are now in plea discussions in the case of Eric Justin Toth, a former private school teacher who was added to the FBI's list of most wanted fugitives during his five years on the run.

After being confronted about images of child pornography taken with a school camera in his possession in 2008, Toth was fired from his teaching job at Beauvoir, an elementary school on the grounds of the Washington National Cathedral.

Toth then left the country and was captured five years later in Nicaragua. He was captured and returned to Washington to face federal charges earlier this year.

Toth is due back in court in September.
