Hibbing teacher charged with allegedly sending nude images to kids

Duluth TV station WDIO reports that according to Hibbing police said that charges have been filed in connection with an investigation into a school teacher.

Jordan Michael Kochevar, 27, now faces four felonies. According to the Hibbing school website, he is a 6th-grade teacher at Lincoln Elementary.

The criminal complaint said the police department got a voicemail on Saturday regarding a video image sent to a 10-year-old child through a group Snapchat.

According to authorities, the image was a man showing frontal nudity from the chin down. The parent thought the person who sent it was Kochevar.

Police said another video showed a bare-chested man lowering the camera down to his private parts, and then exposing himself.

Investigators believe the images were sent to four teens.

When he was interviewed by police, Kochevar allegedly told them he was intoxicated when he sent inappropriate messages to four different juveniles.

The Hibbing School District said on Thursday that they are also conducting an investigation. Kochevar has been placed on administrative leave, per the superintendent.
