Man accused of soliciting photos of nude boys on Facebook

Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - A former elementary school music teacher is now facing federal charges after he was arrested last month for soliciting nude photos of boys on Facebook.

Thirty-two-year-old Derrick Allan Gossett is in custody on two counts of production of child pornography. He faces a federal court hearing Wednesday.

U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson said the counts filed Friday involve allegations when Gossett worked at Anderson Elementary School in the Spring Independent School District.

Administrators on Aug. 27 put Gossett on administrative leave and then he quit amid allegations he posed as a girl on Facebook to solicit nude photos of boys.

Gossett in state court was charged with online solicitation of a minor, promotion of child pornography, online impersonation and three counts of possession of child pornography.
