CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Former CCISD bus driver Marlon Frazier indicted on child pornography and other charges related to messages exchanged on social media with a Kaffie Middle School student.

The incident happened last year, but law enforcement officials became aware of some screenshots displaying child pornography.

Nueces County District Attorney Mark Gonzalez said the screenshots spread like wildfire on social media, and his office and law enforcement officials started to investigate the source.

Gonzalez said citizens started tagging his name on the share Facebook images, and minutes later, people were calling into the District Attorney's Office reporting it. "Before you know it, we found the individual, we found the source, and the investigation continued, and that's where it got us today," Gonzalez continued.

Attorneys with the Nueces County District Attorney's office said Frazier was indicted on one count was for attempted online solicitation of a minor, one count for attempted possession of child pornography, and five separate counts of possession of child pornography.

Michelle Putman, the Assistant District Attorney for Nueces County District Attorney's Office, says, "Due to the great work from the Corpus Christi Police Department, this predator is off of the streets and into jail. Putman said they would seek justice for the victims and keep this predator behind bars for as long as possible.
