Posted by Kelly Hefelfinger - email

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - We have more information about the East Texas assistant band director charged with possessing child pornography.

We got our hands on district court documents that reveals the actual criminal complaint against Al Slatter from Longview ISD. The documents reveal that slatter did "knowingly posses a personal computer containing one or more depictions of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct." It says, "the visual depictions had been shipped and transported in interstate and foreign commerce." This makes it a federal case and explains why the FBI was involved in Slatter's arrest.

We've also learned that Slatter was giving private band lessons to children. The school district says these lessons were in no way set up through LISD.
