An assistant principal at Bemidji Middle School in Minnesota, is now facing federal child pornography charges.

When investigators searched Brandon Bjerknes’ devices earlier this year, they found “multiple sexually explicit photos and videos” of more than 50 kids, including some students who went to Bemidji Middle School, where he was the assistant principal, this according to the US Attorneys office in Minnesota.

Prosecutors allege Bjerknes, 34, would pose as “Brett Larson,” a 13- to 15-year-old, on different social media accounts to talk to middle and high school-aged girls and boys. He would have “sexually explicit conversations”, and he would tell them to send him sexually explicit photos, according to charges.
