A Hibbing man now faces 19 charges related to child pornography and prostitution.

Police say Albert Allen Gangl, 65, was the subject of a three-year investigation. He's a former teacher for the Owatonna Public Schools System, but has never taught in Hibbing.

Court documents state that he allegedly assaulted a 17-year-old boy by engaging in oral sex with him, and then paid him money.

Police also say that they found around 100,000 pornographic images in Gangl's possession, with 11 portraying juveniles. Hibbing police and state authorities worked on the case together.

Gangl has not been arrested, but is expected to be in court next month.
