ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Prosecutors say an Anchorage teaching assistant arrested on child pornography charges admits he routinely traded pictures of children being sexually exploited.

KTUU reports (http://bit.ly/1qFLVZ4 ) that Brown worked with special education students at Huffman Elementary School for about seven years.

Prosecutors said in charging documents Friday that 33-year-old Daniel Alan Brown started downloading illicit images of children about a decade ago.

FBI Special Agent Angela Strouse says Brown primarily used a Russian-based website and Yahoo to locate child pornography.

The Anchorage School District and court documents suggest there's no evidence of Brown sexually abusing children.

An investigation is ongoing. Brown faces a count each of felony distribution and possession of child pornography.

District spokeswoman Heidi Embley says the school's principal and nurse are available to talk with concerned parents.
