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
