WILMINGTON, Del. (WBOC/AP)-   The Delaware Attorney General's Office says that the former headmaster of a private school has been indicted on 25 counts of dealing in child pornography.

The indictment against 53-year-old Christopher Wheeler was secured Monday from the New Castle County Grand Jury.

Wheeler, who has no prior criminal record, stepped down in October as headmaster of Tower Hill School in Wilmington after authorities searched his home and school office as part of a child abuse investigation. Authorities said computers seized during the search resulted in the recovery of multiple images of child pornography. 

He was arrested on Nov. 1 and remains held on $1.5 million cash bail.
