Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Jan. 29 that the Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) of his office arrested Waco Independent School District teacher Jeremy Luke Adler, 37, of Woodway, on one count of possession of child pornography, a third-degree felony.

A CyberTipline report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children alerted CEU investigators that images of child pornography had been uploaded to an email account linked to Adler. While executing a search warrant at his home, investigators located child pornography and seized several digital storage devices that will be examined by the attorney general’s Digital Forensics Unit. The fourth-grade teacher was also arrested by the Woodway Police Department and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance.

The Texas Attorney General’s Office works to protect children by using the latest technology to track down some of the most profoundly evil predators online. The CEU proactively seeks out and arrests predators who commit crimes against children using technology and online sources. Attorney General Paxton urges all parents and teachers to become aware of the risks our children face on the internet and take steps to help ensure their children’s safety.

If you suspect someone is producing or downloading child pornography you can report it to NCMEC. For more information on cyber safety, please visit: https://texasattorneygeneral.gov/initiatives/cyber-safety/.
