The news is out: [A Florida high school teacher and coach has been found with 400 files of child pornography in his possession, deputies said.
Shawn Fitzgerald, 46, is a Lakeland High School teacher, varsity soccer coach and a youth director at First United Methodist Church in Bartow. He was also once employed as a teacher and soccer coach at George Jenkins High School.
On Friday, Fitzgerald was arrested and charged with 408 counts of possessing child porn, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said.
“An arrest like this shakes the entire community,” said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. “A man entrusted with the education and guidance of so many children, working closely with them, and betraying that trust in such a heinous way. Sadly, people who possess child pornography are out there, all over the world.”]
These days, child abuse seems to be a requirement to be a Christian.
