WASHINGTON — A former elementary school teacher who was on the FBI’s list of most wanted fugitives is due in federal court on a child pornography charge.

Eric Justin Toth is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Thursday afternoon in Washington.

He was arrested in Nicaragua last month after five years on the run. The FBI last year added him to its “Ten Most Wanted” list to try to drum up attention to the case.

In 2008, Toth was escorted from the campus of Beauvoir, an elementary school on the grounds of the National Cathedral, after another school employee reported finding images of child pornography on a school camera in Toth’s possession. He fled before he could be arrested.
