Another Prince Georges County teacher is arrested for child porn

A 34-year-old long-term substitute teacher with the Public School System of Prince George's County was arrested and charged with both possession and distribution of child pornography on Thursday, April 20, 2017. His arrest came at the end of an execution of a search warrant of the man's home in Capitol Heights and an interview with the defendant later that same day.

During the execution of the search warrant, state police investigators located a number of electronic devices that appeared to contain images of children. They were reportedly all engaged in acts that were sexually explicit in nature.

In a later interview with detectives, the nine-year veteran of the school district is alleged to have admitted to having personally uploaded known child porn to an internet-based bulk storage account after removing the images from a variety of personal electronic devices.

In all, detectives are said to have found at least 153 sexually explicit images in the man's possession according to the indictment. Of those, most were of young boys, ages 10 to 12. Police say it's unclear if the images located are of any students the man formally taught or coached while working at Bradbury Heights Elementary School.

In addition to his work with that school, he had served as a basketball coach with the South County Sports Academy as well. The man has since been fired by the school district.

As for what led police detectives to begin investigating the defendant? They received a tip from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children back in December. That tip suggested that they had become aware of someone using their Dropbox account to upload inappropriate images of children.

This case marks the second of its kind in just the past few months. Just three months ago, a teacher's aide with the same school district was arrested and later pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges after photos of more than a dozen of his students were found in his possession.

Aggravated circumstances that increase potential sentencing guidelines in cases involving sexual crimes against children depend greatly on whether the material was distributed to others, the number of kids affected and the age of the kids in question. Having an experienced Clinton, Maryland, criminal defense attorney either defending your case or negotiating a plea can greatly impact the outcome of your case.
