A special education teacher's assistant has been arrested in Los Angeles for possessing child pornography.

Police said 35-year-old Frank Hernandez Jr. was arrested at his home in the San Fernando Valley Wednesday morning.

Los Angeles Unified School District spokeswoman Monica Carazo says Hernandez was let go from the district for "unsatisfactory service" on Wednesday.

Carazo says Hernandez was hired by the district on Jan. 8, 2008 and worked on and off at Panorama High School.

Bail was set at $20,000.

It wasn't immediately clear whether he has retained an attorney.

The arrest was made by LAPD officers and Homeland Security Investigations agents who are part of the federal Internet Crimes Against Children task force in the Los Angeles area.
