“On Thursday, August 6, 2020, U.S. District Judge Kenneth D. Bell sentenced a former teacher for receiving child pornography, announced Andrew Murray, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina. Christopher David Muggler, 27, of Indian Trail, N.C. was sentenced to six years in prison and 10 years of supervised release,” said the press release from the U.S. Dept. of Justice.

Muggler was additionally ordered to register as a sex offender after completion of his prison term.

The release states that on Muggler, a former teacher at Covenant Day School in Matthews, N.C., pleaded guilty to receiving child pornography in Feb. of 2020.

“FBI agents conducting an investigation into child exploitation became aware that an individual had “been receiving child pornography via Dropbox links, specifically videos that depicted young male victims being sexually abused.”

BI agents executed a warrant at Muggler’s residence and seized Muggler’s two cell phones in March of 2019. He was found to have 110 images and 34 videos of child pornography in his possession.

Muggler’s case was part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide effort started in May 2006 by the Dept. of Justice to fight child sexual exploitation and abuse.

Muggler did not have a North Carolina teaching license.
