A licensed elementary school teacher in Missouri faces 25 counts of possession of child pornography.

Andrew Ray Jr. was charged in Johnson County Circuit Court. Investigators said they found graphic videos of prepubescent and teen girls and boys engaged in sexual act.

On Oct. 31, detectives served a search warrant at Ray's home as part of an investigation into the distribution of child pornography. According to court documents, officers found 207 files on Ray's computer and the "majority of those files had names consistent with child pornography."

Ray's resume listed numerous employers in education. According to court documents, his wife told investigators that he worked as a substitute elementary teacher at Holden Elementary School.

Court documents offer graphic and salacious details about the videos found on Ray's computer with at least one of the files alleged to be depicting incestuous acts.

Ray admitted to downloading the videos and watching them at night after his wife went to bed, according to court documents. The files were downloaded in 2012 and 2013.

He faces five to 15 years in prison on each count.
