Three Bossier Parish men, including a former Caddo schoolteacher, are accused of possessing videos and sexual abuse images of children.
The three now are being held in Bossier Maximum-Security Prison at Plain Dealing.
James Wilson, 32, of the 100 block of Bobbie Street in Bossier City, was booked at 7:25 a.m. Tuesday on 100 counts of pornography involving juveniles, booking records show. The charges involve a juvenile under age 13, the records show. His bonds total $150,000.

Stewart taught at Ridgewood Middle School in Shreveport from August until Wednesday, according to Caddo School District spokeswoman Mary Wood.

Wood also said nothing in Stewart's background would have raised a red flag.
Caddo School District is cooperating with the Louisiana attorney general's office in that investigation.
“These arrests should serve as a reminder to the state that my office will not stand for the exploitation of children,” Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said in a news release. “We will continue doing all we legally can to find child predators and bring them to justice.”
Also involved in the investigations were the FBI, Homeland Security Investigations, the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation, the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office, the Caddo district attorney's office and the FBI, Bossier City marshal’s office.
