Parents and neighbors of a local teacher arrested for child pornography spoke out Monday about his arrest.

40 year old Paul Shepard learned of his charges while inside his hospital room on Friday.

The exceptional school teacher at Jamesville High School has been on medical leave, according to Martin County's Superintendent and remains on leave until the investigation is complete.

The concern Shepard's neighbors have is that he lived next to small kids and just a block away from a daycare.

Parents with children at Jamesville High are upset they were not told about the teacher's arrest.

Martin County's District Attorney, Seth Edwards says he couldn't comment about the case, but says they don't think the images found at Shepard's home are of students at the school.
