— A former youth soccer coach was arrested Friday, four days after being indicted on charges of having child pornography on a computer.

Michael Anthony Ingram, 38, was indicted on seven counts each of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

The charges stem from videos and pictures on a computer hard drive that depicted minors engaged in sexual activity.

The State Bureau of Investigation is investigating the case, which will be prosecuted by the Durham County District Attorney's Office.

Ingram was a soccer coach at Leesville High School from 2004 to 2006, when he moved to coach at East Chapel Hill High School. He also worked as a teacher's assistant at both schools.

    What in heavens name is wrong with people today. Coaches and teachers???? Pornography, killings, rapes, shootings, driving drunk, stealing money. There's not much left that folks won't do. Quite frankly its disgusting how morals in this country are at an all time low.
