BEND, OR -- A Bend High language arts teacher was arrested Wednesday for allegedly downloading child pornography at his home. 

 

Police began their investigation Tuesday, after becoming aware of someone downloading "known images depicting child pornography" inside the Bend city limits. Evidence led officers to a home on Brookside Way, in southwest Bend. Jason "Jay" Jackson was taken into custody after police executed a search warrant at his residence.  

 

Investigators notified Bend-La Pine Schools and the 50-year-old teacher was immediately placed on administrative leave. Jackson is charged with one count each of Encouraging Child Sex Abuse and Attempted Encouraging Child Sex Abuse; more charges may be added.
