Former Garland ISD employee indicted on 5 child porn charges

GARLAND -- New details have been revealed in the child pornography case against a former employee of the Garland Independent School District.

Kirk Patrick Heshler, 60, was arrested on Aug. 16, after a detective found "numerous files for child pornography on his computer, which was seized," police said.

Heshler bonded out after paying $15,000. A grand jury indicted him on five counts of child porn on Sept. 26.

Garland SD spokesperson Dr. Mida Milligan says Heshler was a high school vocational coordinator and has since been fired.

"The district continues to make the safety and security of our students and staff a top priority," Dr. Milligan said.

Court documents released to WFAA on Thursday reveal that while conducting a search of Heshler's home, they also found a "nude, realistic child size doll" in a bedroom closet. 

Videos depicting child pornography were found on a laptop taken from Heshler's home. Police believe he had been accessing the videos when police showed up.

Hundreds of files were later found on the laptop and on an external hard drive, the documents state.
