  • Mark Saltzer, 43, is being held on $1 million bond for alleged sexual exploitation of a child.

It will be April 2013 before a former Meridian Middle School counselor faces trial for 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a child.

Officials with the Meridian School District insist that any alleged crimes committed by 43-year-old Mark Saltzer "took place completely outside our school system." Saltzer, an employee of the Meridian district since 2007, was put on leave over the summer.

Boise Police raided Saltzer's home Aug. 17, when they said they discovered nearly 400 pornographic images of children. Prosecutors said Saltzer was part of an online group that traded self-produced porn files.

Saltzer, who pleaded not guilty to the charges Tuesday, is being held at the Ada county Jail on a $1 million bond.
