And it’s worse than this headline implies. From the Star-Advertiser:
Initially, FBI agents in Philadelphia received a cybertip in July 2021 identifying a private K-12th grade school teacher in Philadelphia, known as AW, as having uploaded child pornography to his account.
The FBI then discovered Bunag on Oahu had exchanged with the Philadelphia teacher more than 3,392 messages, including hundreds of images and video files, the complaint alleges.
The Philadelphia teacher allegedly used a messaging application to send messages over his cellphone, discussing and trading child pornography.
Based on chats Bunag and the Philadelphia teacher had, Bunag claimed to have had sex with a 13-year-old boy at school during lunch breaks and that some of the empty files the FBI reviewed contain videos of Bunag and the boy having sex, the FBI agents believe.
Libs of TikTok highlighted the story, too:
