ALBANY, Ore. -- A shop teacher faces accusations he paid a teen girl money for explicit photos and videos of herself sent from her cell phone over the course of several years.
David Wesley Wright II, 45, of Albany was booked into the Linn County Jail on charges of using a child in a sexual display and third degree sex abuse. The first charge comes with $100,000 bail, according to jail records.
Detectives say he paid a 16-year-old family acquaintance money in exchange for sexually explicit photos and video that she sent from her cell phone.
Investigators told KVAL News the exchange happened over the course of "a couple years."
Detectives have not determined how much money Wright allegedly paid, a sheriff's office spokesperson said.
Linn County Sheriff's detectives served a search warrant at Wright's house Thursday with the help of Albany Police.
During the search, detectives seized three laptops and multiple cell phones.

Police made the arrest during the search of Wright's home. Police said that Wright was cooperative during the investigation.
Wright works for South Albany High School as a metal shop teacher.
