One of the most trusted figures in a young child's life is their teachers. With every passing year, most Tennessee teachers are responsible for teaching the future of the nation. Countless teachers are respected and well loved by the community, but every now and then, that teacher may be accused of an offense that falls under the sex crimes category. For someone who is in charge of teaching young children, a sex crime can ruin their entire career and reputation. Several teachers across the nation have lost their teaching license due to a sex crime charge.
Recently a former Tennessee teacher of 31 years is now facing several charges of child pornography. The alleged incidents occurred between 2008 and 2012 at the teacher's own home. Authorities allegedly found child pornography on the male teacher's home computer. The man was charged with one count of possessing child pornography and five counts of receipt of child pornography.
