Carteret County Teacher Pleads Guilty To Child Porn Charges

A Carteret County school teacher is not preparing for the upcoming school year. Instead, he is preparing for his sentencing after pleading guilty to child pornography charges.

Walter Pettit, 52, was arrested in May and pleaded guilty in federal court in August to receipt of child pornography, according to the Jacksonville Daily News.

Lawmen said the former Broad Creek Middle School teacher received thousands of images of child pornography, but no students were victimized.

According to the newspaper report, Pettit will be sentenced October 31.
