    Saunders is being held in lieu of a $1 million bond, WGHP reported.

    If convicted, Saunders could be sentenced to life in prison without parole, WXII reported.

    According to the ICE news release, photos and videos connected to the case depict indecent liberties against child victims who are between the ages of 2 to 3, WFMY reported.

    In March, Saunders admitted to producing and sending child pornography, according to the ICE news release. That led to her arrest Friday. She was fired from the school that day, WXII reported.

    According to a statement from Fellowship Day School last week, a background check on Saunders showed no reason for concern, WGHP reported.

    Saunders is expected back in court April 30.
