Charge: school psychologist had child porn

SEATTLE (AP) -- A Washington state man working as a psychologist in a British Columbia school system has been charged in federal court with possessing child pornography.

The seattlepi.com reports (http://bit.ly/1nHdmMT) that William Brook lived in Point Roberts, a small Whatcom County community located on a peninsula with no land access to the United States. American authorities say Brook was working for the Delta, British Columbia school system.

Prosecutors charge that Brook bought and traded child pornography online, downloading hundreds of child rape photos and videos.

Charging documents say Brook had an online profile where he declared his "love" for "pre-teen/pubescent boys and young teens" no older than 14.

He remains jailed without bond pending that hearing.
