A former All Saints School aide is facing new charges for her alleged role in trafficking child pornography.

23-year-old Emily Oberst was arrested alongside Jason Kopp in March on sexual exploitation charges.

Oberst is now being charged under a 19-count superseding indictment that includes sexual exploitation of a minor and distribution of child pornography.

Kopp has already pleaded guilty to 22 felonies – each carrying a minimum of 20 years in prison.

If Oberst is convicted, she faces a minimum of 15 years and a maximum of 30 years for each count of conspiracy to sexually exploit children and sexual exploitation of a child.

In addition, she faces a mandatory minimum sentence of five years and a maximum sentence of 20 years for distribution of child pornography.

She would also be required to register as a sex offender.

The investigation began when Kopp told an undercover agent that he had pictures of an infant that were sent to him by a woman.

Oberst was fired from her position as a teachers’ aide at All Saints Elementary in Syracuse’s Tipperary Hill neighborhood following her arrest.
