Md. teacher charged with possessing child porn

Friday - 1/10/2014, 7:31pm  ET

ELLICOTT CITY, Md. -- Howard County police say a substitute middle school teacher has been charged with possessing child pornography.

Jeremy Sykes of Columbia was arrested Thursday night after investigators say they learned that uploads of child pornography had been traced to the same user on computers at his home and in the county public school system.

The 43-year-old Sykes had been working as a substitute teacher at Folly Quarter Middle School in Ellicott City.

Police say he's been banned from entering any school system property. They say there's no indication that any students in the photos attend the school where Sykes taught.

Court records don't list a defense lawyer for Sykes, and no phone number for him could immediately be found.
