PHOENIX AZ Feb 19 2012 (AP) – Authorities say a man who’s a fourth-grade teacher in the Paradise Valley School District has been arrested in a sexual exploitation case.
Phoenix police say 54-year-old Thomas H. Warner was taken into custody Monday on suspicion of 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
Police detectives from the Arizona Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force served a search warrant for child pornography at Warner’s home and say they found numerous items of child pornography.
Police say Warner has been employed by the Paradise Valley School District for the past several years.
He’s been booked into the Maricopa County Jail, but it was unclear Monday afternoon whether he has a lawyer yet.
