Cops Say Suspected Child Porn Found In Teacher's Home

A teacher has been arrested after police say they found suspected child porn at his home.

Paul Shepard is charged with one count of third degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

Shepard teaches exceptional children at Jamesville High School.

Police say on Wednesday they were made aware that child porn may be located at the man's home in Williamston. After a search warrant on the home on North Haughton Street, items seized were presented to the district attorney.

Shepard was arrested Friday and placed in jail on a $50,000 bond. If released, the magistrate ordered Shepard not be in the presence of a person under the age of 18.

Police say this case is still in the beginning stages and urge anyone with information on exploitation of children to contact Williamston police.
