LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) – An employee at a Las Vegas private school appeared in federal court Thursday on charges that he received and possessed child pornography.

John-Benedict Galang Alcantara, who works in computer support at Spring Valley Montessori School, is charged with one count of receipt of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. If convicted, Alcantara faces a minimum of five years and a maximum of 20 years in prison on the receipt charge and a maximum of 10 years in prison on the possession charge, as well as fines of up to $250,000 on each count.

The FBI says child pornography images and videos were being shared online through an Internet address traced to Alcantara’s residence in Las Vegas. One of the videos depicted a prepubescent female child having sex with an adult male. Authorities seized several computers and related devices from the home containing numerous images of child pornography.

Authorities also seized four more computers which they believe were under Alcantara’s control from the Montessori School, and determined that efforts had been made to erase the hard drives of these computers. However, remnants of child pornography files were found on a least one of them, they said.
