A central Florida teacher faces multiple charges after deputies say four of his ninth-grade students saw pornography on his cellphone.

A Polk County Sheriff's Office news release says the incident happened Wednesday afternoon in 47-year-old Vadi Velez-Gonzalez's intensive reading class at Mulberry High School. The school district placed him on leave Friday, and he was arrested Monday.

The news release says a student went to the teacher's desk to ask a question and saw a face-up iPhone with a website showing adult male pornography. Three other students saw it and reported it to school officials.

Velez-Gonzalez is charged with four counts of showing obscene material to a minor.

Records don't indicate whether has hired a lawyer to contact for comment on the case.
