Cambridge Teacher Indicted On Child Porn Charges

BOSTON — A Cambridge fifth-grade teacher has been indicted on federal child pornography charges.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 27-year-old Josh Wairi, of Somerville, was indicted Thursday on a charge of transportation of child pornography and three counts of production of child pornography.

Prosecutors allege Wairi received and sent child pornography by email, and uploaded images and videos of children being sexually exploited that he transferred to others.

He is being held without bail.

Wairi has been placed on administrative leave and the district is cooperating with law enforcement.

Wairi’s family says while they stand by him they understand the seriousness of the charges. He faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
