Former teacher pleads guilty to child porn

A teacher who spent years working for Lorain Schools pleaded guilty Tuesday to federal child pornography charges.

Edward Dembiec, 53, will be sentenced in November, according to U.S. District Court records.

Dembiec, who has worked for Lorain Schools since the 1980s, was charged by way of information last month. The charging documents accused him of possessing a desktop computer, a laptop and numerous DVDs that contained child pornography.

Lorain Schools Superintendent Tom Tucker has said that the district suspended Dembiec last year after learning about the U.S. Postal Inspection Service investigation.

Tucker also has said the district isn’t aware of Dembiec doing anything inappropriate with students or on school property.
