EAGLE RIVER, WI (WTAQ) - A former school teacher in far northern Wisconsin has pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography.

State prosecutors said 47-year-old Michael Wang of Florence used a school laptop to chat sexually with underage girls – and it often happened while he was in his old middle school classroom in Eagle River.

Wang struck a plea deal in which he was convicted of two felony counts of possessing child porn. Eight similar counts were dropped. Wang is scheduled to be sentenced on January 2nd.

State Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said officials were alerted to the sexual chatting when they were monitoring the school computers.

Officials later found two digital flash-drives in a classroom cabinet which had over 100 pornographic videos and photos, some showing children as young as four.
