Police executed an arrest warrant Thursday for former DeKalb schools superintendent Doug Moeller.

The district had placed Moeller on paid leave in the fall of 2016, shortly after a former principal sought an order of protection against him for alleged sexual harassment. He was dismissed the following April.

DeKalb police say school officials received sexual images of a school district employee from an unknown phone number last year.

Investigators say Moeller allegedly gave a former student money to buy the phone the photos came from with no name attached.

Moeller is charged with non-consensual dissemination of private sexual images. Illinois law says that class 4 felony could mean up to three years in prison.
