Substitute Teacher/Coach Arrested On Child Porn Charges

6 posts in this topic

Police say a 34-year-old man who has been a substitute teacher and coach at a Maryland elementary school is now behind bars on child porn charges.

 

 
 
Christopher H. Speights faces three counts of distribution of child pornography and six counts of possession of child pornography. Additional charges are also pending.
 
Maryland State Police learned that he is or has been a substitute teacher and basketball coach at Bradbury Heights Elementary School in Prince George’s County, as well as a basketball coach with the South County Sports Academy.
 
The investigation into Speights began back in December 2016, when investigators in the Maryland State Police Computer Crimes Unit got information about someone distributing child pornography.  Authorities identified Speights as a suspect, and during a search of his home, they report finding multiple electronic devices that had videos of child pornography on them.

 

 

Deplorable.  

 

Seems they need to do a better job of vetting their substitute teachers / coaches.

What indication do you have that this would have been uncovered in a background check?

Unless he was accused/convicted previously nothing would show up in such a check.

And the school system doesn't run around like the FBI doing interviews in the neighborhood like they do for Security Clearances.

And even if they did like the FBI....as we have seen with the FBI even that isn't foolproof.

 

Nope .... nail him to the cross and move on. There are bigger fish to fry.

Just hope he gets no more or less than the many women teachers who have sex with underage male students.
