UPDATE: Former Teacher Due In Court

A former Martin County teacher now has a November 19th court date on charges police found child pornography at his home.

Paul Shepard is charged with third degree sexual exploitation of a minor. Shepard taught exceptional children at Jamseville High School in Martin County at the time of his arrest. The Williamston man was arrested in May after police searched his home.

Court officials say Shepard was indicted last month on the charge, which is a Class I felony.

Martin County school officials say Shepard resigned shortly after his arrest.

    this man deserves maximum penalty, how was he allowed back in the public after being released from the hospital and obviously has not had the treatment that he needs. he needs major help. he is being prayed for but i just dont understand how this happens you grow up know right from wrong even if you were abused. this was wrong!!

    Chad, schools do not to psyc evaluations on potential employees. This is true of MC and other schools as well. I doubt there are very many places at all that do such an evaluation unless it is an extremely high stress job or one involving extreme security issues.
