I've made a decision concerning titling thread headings. If the person was employed in their position at the time of their arrest, I will not state that they are a "former" teacher, coach, doctor....whatever. I will only use that description if they have retired or moved on when arrested. The way I look at it is that a teacher was arrested for a heinous crime against children here which has caused him to now be a "former teacher". I will continue to post the headlines used by the media sources within the body of the post. Back to this story. LE was notified in April about child porn on this guy's computers but his school only removed him from direct contact with children and he was just arrested last week????? What's wrong with this story? http://www.hometownglenburnie.com/n...n+Burnie+teacher+charged+with+child+porn.html Former Glen Burnie teacher charged with child porn "A former physical education teacher at a Glen Burnie elementary school has been charged with multiple counts of child pornography following a lengthy investigation into images on his personal computers, county police said. Gregory Alan Christy, 39, a former teacher at Rippling Woods Elementary School, was charged Wednesday with distribution of child pornography and 10 counts of possessing child pornography. He was released from Jennifer Road Detention Center on $250,000 bond...." and "....Police received a tip on April 5 from an adult, who had found child pornography on Christy's home computer..." and "....Officers seized computers belonging to Christy. School officials were made aware of the allegation in April and reassigned Christy to an administrative position that had no contact with children..." and "...Federal agencies and found images of children previously identified as victims by the National Center For Missing And Exploited Children. None of those cases involved children from Anne Arundel County, [County Police Spokeman, Justin] Mulcahy said. Police took Christy into custody at his home Wednesday...." more at link And: http://www.hometownannapolis.com/ne...impressed-with-school-in-child-porn-case.html Parents impressed with school in child porn case "....Police said [Gregory] Christy, who'd taught in the county school system since 1996, had 562 images and 143 videos of suspected child pornography on his computers. He was released from the Jennifer Road Detention Center in Parole the day of his arrest, posting $250,000 bond, court records show. Although he was charged Wednesday and promptly suspended with pay, school system officials said Christy was immediately reassigned to an administrative position with no contact with children when the allegations came to light in April...." and "....In a letter that went home with students Thursday, Principal Gwen Atkinson assured parents that Christy has not worked in school buildings and has not been in a location where students were present since then...." and "....Some of the children in the images appeared to be younger than 10 years old, court documents said...." more at link Sorry, but if I was a parent, I wouldn't be pleased. This man, was by all accounts, a popular gym teacher. I don't care if he's kept outside the school buildings, parents should have been warned about the investigation. It is highly possible and probable that the man encountered school kids around town. They would have no reason, whatsoever, to be cautious. Nor would their parents. Not OK in my book.
