CHULA VISTA, Calif. – A Chula Vista High School teacher accused of distributing child pornography was arrested by federal agents, according to court documents.

FBI agents searched the home on Franklin Avenue in Logan Heights on January 21. They took the desktop computer of Roberto Antonio Sandoval, who had been living with his mother and 7-year-old daughter, according to a federal court complaint.

Agents found several images of young, partially nude girls on the computer, an investigator said.

The investigation into Sandoval's alleged actions began August 9, when an agent downloaded suspected child porn from a peer-to-peer file sharing program.

Sandoval is a teacher from the Chula Vista High School learning center and was placed on administrative leave, according to Sweetwater Union High School District spokesman Manny Rubio.  The teacher was cooperating with FBI investigators since last Thursday and students and their parents have been notified, according to Rubio.
