TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say a high-ranking school official in one of Alabama’s largest counties has been indicted on federal charges of child enticement and child pornography.

The indictment of Jefferson County Schools’ personnel director Brett William Kirkham was announced Friday by federal prosecutors.

Kirkham already faced state charges of having sex with students in two counties.

In June 2006, he was arrested in Tuscaloosa County on charges of being a school employee and having sex with a student younger than 19.

In Jefferson County, officials said Kirkham was charged with having sex with a student.

His attorney, Joel Sogol, didn’t immediately return a phone call for comment from The Associated Press.
