School employee accused of child pornography collection

Living in Florida and working with children is hard enough without having to worry about potential false accusations. If you find that someone has accused you of having images of a child or that others believe you're a potential sex offender, you have every right to be concerned. This news story may be of particular interest to you.

You may have heard about a man who has been accused of holding dozens of images of child pornography on his computer. The 51-year-old man is a licensed psychologist who works with a special education department. Now, he's facing 25 counts of using a computer to compile child pornography, according to the Broward County Florida Sheriff's Office.

The trouble with child pornography charges based on computer evidence is the potential for others to use the devices. Sometimes, proving that a person has been the one collecting these images can be difficult or even impossible. As a defense, this makes it easier for those who have been falsely accused to point out where images may have come from.

In this case, the man was in town visiting from Ashland City when detectives served him a search warrant at the inn where he was staying. The team had previously discovered images of minors in sexually explicit poses or performing sexual acts on two other computers. It's not clear if the man owned those computers.

The school district reported that the man had been suspended immediately and his pay has been suspended as well. The school claims this has been as a result of the investigation, although he has yet to be convicted of any crime.
