37-year-old Cody Chitwood, a Derby Middle School teacher, has made his first appearance in court; he's charged with 11 counts of sexual exploitation of a child.

Chitwood has been suspended with pay from the school; he was arrested last month, following a two-month-long investigation into child pornography by the Sedgwick County sheriff's department.

Investigators believe the crimes did not involve students nor staff at the school. Chitwood's preliminary hearing is set for February 22.
