Authorities found Eric Justin Toth living under an assumed name. He was immediately deported to the United States and is expected to appear in federal court Tuesday afternoon in Washington.

Nicaraguan police say Toth entered the country with a false passport and also had a fake driver's license and credit cards.

Toth taught third grade at Beauvoir, a private elementary school on the grounds of the Washington National Cathedral. He was escorted off campus in 2008 after another teacher reported finding sexually explicit photographs on a school camera in Toth's possession.
