PARAMUS - A Paramus private school teacher is due in court today following an arrest on child pornography charges.

Evan Zauder was arrested after the FBI raided his Manhattan apartment on Monday. Federal authorities say a computer containing hundreds of images and videos of minor children engaging in sexually explicit conduct was seized during the search.

The 26-year-old is a sixth grade teacher at the Modern Orthodox school Yeshivat Noam. Reports say the principal of the school issued a statement to parents saying there was no reason to believe that any of the students were involved or directly affected.

Zauder is charged with one count of possessing child pornography, which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000.
