Former South Middle School teacher Charles Gastel was arrested on a federal indictment for the sexual exploitation of a minor.
JOPLIN, MO--- Charles Gastel was arrested Friday on a federal indictment for the sexual exploitation of a minor earlier this month. Gastel had worked for South Middle for the past year, but left that job at the end of the 2013 school year. The criminal charge as no connection to the school, or any Joplin students he came in contact with on the job.

Authorities say the complaint is connected to material found on Gastel's computer, which was seized during the investigation.
