Anti-Gay Kentucky High School Principal Arrested On Child Pornography Charges

An anti-gay Kentucky principal who in 2009 who tried to ban books with “homosexual content” from his high school was arrested Tuesday on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography.

Todd Wilson, the principal of the Clark County Area Technology Center, located at the George Rogers Clark High School in Winchester, Kentucky, was arrested by state troopers after a complaint saying they saw Wilson give child pornography to another person.

Kentucky State Trooper said Wilson had about 15 images of child pornography, which resulted in 15 counts of distribution of matter portraying sexual performance by a minor, and another 15 counts of possessing matter portraying sexual performance by a minor.

In 2009, when Wilson was the principal of Montgomery County High School, he came under fire for banning a number of books from the classroom for “homosexual content.”

The controversy was over a number of contemporary LGBT young-adult books being taught next to classic works like Beowulf.

The Montgomery County High School administration, backed Wilson and banned the books.

Wilson is held in the Clark County Detention Center on $25,000 bail

  1. I see more of the same. The people that teach the republican, Family Values, doing just the opposite. Remember this is Moscow Mitch’s Home State, that He is Running In For His Life, with Russian Help… Defeat him, and raise this perverts bail by at least $75,000.00. It’s getting to a point where they blame us that are gay, for their behavior almost daily. We do not normally deal in this type of thing, nor are we the ones caught molesting or raping our young children. It is so called straight men & women, that do this stuff. Then try to get away with it. What a piece of work our country is becoming. Run by the same molestors, sex traders, child porn sharing, low life, party line, g.o.p. community leaders. When will the general public learn the truth and put the blame where it belongs, with the backup information from the medical and scientific community? Right on this group of lying scum, that has no moral values at all! They just talk a good game.
