FOLEY — A St. Cloud man has pleaded guilty to three felony counts of possessing child pornography.

Thirty-five-year-old Samuel Teachman had been charged with five counts of possession of child pornography and five counts of distributing child pornography. As part of the plea agreement the remaining two child pornography possession charges and the five distribution of child pornography charges will be dismissed.

Court records show, authorities began investigating Teachman in August 2016. In March of this year, authorities used a search warrant at Teachman’s northeast St. Cloud apartment and confiscated computer equipment and other electronics which contained several videos of children involved in various sex acts.

Teachman told investigators he was doing research to see if his child was in any porn videos. He also admitted to undergoing counseling in 2007 for child pornography.

Investigators say Teachman ultimately admitted to downloading the videos.

He’ll be sentenced in Benton County District Court November 8th.
