Andrew Arison, 36, of Sycamore, was charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography — a class two felony — on Wednesday, according to a Sycamore Police news release.

Sycamore Police seized computer equipment from Arison’s home on March 12 while assisting DeKalb Police in a separate investigation, according to the news release. An examination of Arison’s computer revealed thousands of images of child pornography.

Arison was charged with three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse March 12 after police were notified he had inappropriately touched two students at Huntley Middle School, according to a DeKalb Police news release. Arison worked as a teacher’s aide at the school, according to the release.
