CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota high school principal has been charged with seven counts of possessing child pornography.

Forty-four-year-old Timothy Dorway was charged Thursday in Carver County and remains in custody.

He's the principal at Chanhassen High School, and was put on paid leave pending a school investigation. A spokesman for the school district says no students were involved.

According to a criminal complaint, authorities received a tip that a Dropbox user had uploaded images of potential child pornography. An investigator learned that the account was accessed numerous times by Dorway, including from a computer owned by the Eastern Carver County School District.

The complaint says that when he was arrested Tuesday, Dorway admitted to viewing child pornography involving underage girls.

Dorway was the principal of Mayo High School in Rochester for several years before he was hired by the East Carver School District for the position in Chanhassen in 2010.
