HILDEBRAN, N.C. — A third grade Burke County teacher is facing charges he was part of a global child pornography ring.

Michael Andrew Alexander, 54, was arrested Wednesday on charges including first-degree sexual offense of a child and sexual exploitation of a minor, deputies said.

Authorities investigating child pornography in Spain say they found images they believe had been sent by Alexander. Investigators said a child in one video had on a T-shirt from Hildebran Elementary School — the same school where Alexander has taught for seven years.

Authorities say Alexander made copies of sexual videos involving children and engaged in a sex act with a girl under the age of 13.

An attorney has been appointed for Alexander, who is jailed on $1 million bond. He’s due in court July 3.
