Afterschool teacher allegedly found with child pornography

An after school program teacher has been linked to possessing child pornography, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office.

Ian Silver-Eck, 26, of Revere, was arraigned Friday on possession of obscene material and possession of child pornography charges. His bail was set at $1,000.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children contacted state police on December 2 about a suspect who used Skype to share images thought to be child pornography, according to the DA’s office. After an investigation, authorities linked the account’s subscriber information to a computer in the “Build Yourself” part time teacher’s Ocean Avenue home. Authorities said Silver-Eck is not affiliated with Revere Public Schools.
