Math Teacher Jerome Pearson Found With 1,500 Child Porn Images in Hialeah
Rather than face a full trial, Pearson has plead guilty to the counts. He now faces up to 10 years in prison, followed by life-time supervised release. He will also have to register as a sex offender.
Pearson was hired by Broward Public Schools to teach at Everglades High in 2005, and resigned in August. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials originally caught wind of Pearson's child porn habit in July. His wife allowed investigators to search his laptop. They found more than 1,500 images on the computer. Pearson latter admitted to having had viewed child porn online for the last ten years.
Pearson's sentencing is scheduled for January 12, 2012.
