A Marblehead High School teacher is one of11 suspects arrested in Rhode Island, facing charges of possessing or transferring child porn.

 

WickedLocal/Marblehead reportsWilliam Morgan, 30, was arrested on Thursday. He was hired as a physics teacher at Marblehead High.

 

In a press release, the Rhode Island State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force stated that the 11 arrests were initiated through an undercover investigative operation to identify subjects involved in sharing images of child pornography on the Internet. Court-authorized search warrants were executed at multiple homes, and numerous images and videos of child pornography were subsequently located.

 

Marblehead School Superintendent Maryann Perry sent a message to all parents of NHS students and made it clear that the materials Morgan is charged with possessing do “not involve students in the Marblehead public schools.”

“The teacher has been removed from the school and has been barred from any contact with Marblehead students and from accessing any Marblehead public school buildings, property and events,” Perry wrote. “As always, the safety and welfare of our students is our highest priority, and we take all precautions and measures necessary to protect our students.”
