CARSON ( KTLA) -- A Carson elementary school teacher accused of posting and distributing child pornography is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Last month, Los Angeles police detectives served a search warrant on the home of 53 year Silvestre Ela. Investigators say they found evidence that Ela downloaded and possibly created images of child pornography.

According to detectives, Ela admitted to viewing and downloading images of child pornography but he denied victimizing any children.

Ela was arrested and detectives took his computers and DVDs to look for possible evidence against him. He is currently out on bail.

Ela is a fifth grade teacher at L.A. Unified's Dominguez Elementary School and is now on unpaid leave according to district officials.

Authorities are investigating whether Ela personally created any of the child pornography images and are asking the public for help in identifying children who may have had inappropriate contact with the teacher.

Anyone with information about the investigation is asked to call LAPD detectives at (562) 624-4027. Anonymous tipsters may call (800) 222-8477.
