MONMOUTH, Maine — A former schoolteacher is again facing criminal charges for having child pornography.

Christopher Brown, 55, was arrested last Tuesday, according to WABI. WABI reported that Brown was released on $3,000 bail and plans to plead not guilty to the charges.

Brown was arrested in June for the same thing, but the charges later were dropped. Police reportedly found 45 pornographic images on Brown’s computer.

Brown also allegedly admitted to police that he superimposed pictures of Monmouth Middle School students’ heads onto pictures of other children, who were clothed in bathing suits and skirts. But those pictures were not part of the criminal charges at the time because the children in the pictures were clothed.

The charges at that time, police said, stemmed from about 45 other sexually explicit images of children that were found on laptops hidden in a waterproof container in Brown’s yard.
