Northland Pines Middle School teacher faces child pornography charges

Posted:

EAGLE RIVER (WAOW)--A Northland Pines Middle School Teacher is charged with 65 counts of possessing child pornography and 3 counts of causing a child to view or listen to sexual activity.

46-year-old Michael Wang was arrested late Wednesday morning. He was a teacher at Northland Pines Middle School in Eagle River. Authorities said he recently resigned from that position. Pornographic material was found on a school computer.

Vilas County authorities initiated the investigation on May 6th, 2011. Vilas County Sheriff Frank Tomlanovich said he doesn't believe any local students are involved in the case and at this point, they do not believe any other school employees are involved.

The investigation is still ongoing. Authorities say there could be further charges.

Wang is scheduled to appear at a bond hearing Thursday.
