Former Opelousas City Council member Larry Caillier Junior is under arrest tonight.
Caillier was picked up by federal authorities Friday morning at his Opelousas home and was in court before a federal judge the same afternoon
Caillier has been charged with 3 counts of child pornography.
The first, production of child pornography, which means sexually exploiting a child to produce pornography.
The second charge is causing a child to engage in criminal sexual activity.
The third is possession of child pornography.
St Landry Parish Superintendent Micheal Nassif says callier resigned for quote "personal reasons".
Callier was a Biology teacher at Opelousas High, where he was apparently well liked.
KATC actually broke the news to the superintendent about charges Caillier was facing.
No one had notified the school.
"We know that he has not been at school for the last couple of days. That's pretty normal for this time of year. Until we hear further information, that's all we know," says Nassif.
