Ex-Teacher Pleads Not Guilty To Child Porn Charges

August 31, 2014, 11:26 AM

Ex-Teacher Pleads Not Guilty To Child Porn Charges
RAPID CITY, SD -

A former middle school teacher in Rapid City has pleaded not guilty to child pornography charges.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says 27-year-old Andrew Hiipakka entered his plea to charges of receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography.

A federal indictment against Hiipakka states that between November 2013 and August 2014 he knowingly received and possessed computer files containing child porn.

The Rapid City man was arrested Aug. 19 after detectives with the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force received a tip that led to a search of his home.

It's unclear whether Hiipakka has an attorney. Conviction carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years.

Hiipakka was immediately fired from St. Thomas More Middle School after police contacted the Rapid City Catholic School System regarding the investigation.
