Maryland middle school teacher caught in sting targeting child predators

A Maryland middle school teacher has been charged after soliciting a police officer posing online as a 14-year-old boy for sex, Fairfax County police said Thursday.

Fairfax County police say they identified Fischer through an online chat investigation that began August 31.

The suspect started a conversation with the detective and asked for sexual contact - even though police said the suspect believed he was in contact with a minor. Fischer also allegedly sent explicit images to the detective.

Charges in Maryland depend the Virginia investigation.

Fischer was arrested at his home at 5:40 a.m. when state troopers, Homeland Security Investigations agents, FBI agents and Westminster police arrived to serve a search warrant, accompanied by Fairfax County investigators.

Fisher was arrested at his home early Wednesday morning. The school told WBAL that he was suspended without pay.

The agencies found various electronic and digital data storage that was turned over to investigators in Virginia. He is in custody in Maryland pending an extradition hearing.

According to the Carroll County Times, Fischer is a former Teacher of the Year in the county.

State police stressed that Fischer is not now being charged with any violations of Maryland criminal law, but say that it's possible that charges may stem from the ongoing investigation.

Police believe they have identified other victims who may have had contact with Fischer in Northern Virginia as well as Maryland. Or submit a tip anonymously by visiting www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org or text a tip to CRIMES (274637).

He previously worked as either an administrator or teacher at the following Carroll County schools: North Carroll High School, Winters Mill High School, Francis Scott Key High School, Manchester Valley High School, Sykesville Middle School and Mt.
