    Can I just say that the comment, "no area children involved" never fails to floor me. I don't care where a child lives or what they look like, a child is a child. Is this comment supposed to tamp down local hysteria? Doesn't fly with me. FWIW, this is the very first time I've seen a tip off by Italian police.

    Teacher is facing child-porn charges
    No area children are thought to be involved in case


    "A tip by Italian police led to the arrest of a Reynoldsburg High School teacher and coach, who admitted to federal agents yesterday that he accessed child pornography several times a week, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court.

    Agents searched the Pickerington home of Matthew R. Fisher, 33, who has been a high-school social-studies teacher for a decade. This year, he also began coaching the districtwide eighth-grade girls basketball team..."

    and

    "...Agents seized five computers and other storage devices, one of which "contained a prepubescent female performing oral sex on an adult male," according to the complaint. Fisher told the agents that investigators would find "hundreds of images and dozens of videos containing child pornography" on his computers, some of which involved adult men having sex with girls...."

    ETA: I read through all 114 comments--primarily bickering about unions. There were two comments by friends of the accused, both of which said that the real villain is the site that puts child porn on the internet. One also claimed that the man also did it only once. I don't think so.
