A former Anne Arundel County elementary school physical education teacher was arrested Wednesday and charged with more than 10 child pornography counts, authorities said.

Gregory Alan Christy, 39, of the 7000 block of Timberfield Place, is a former teacher at at Rippling Woods Elementary, police said Thursday.

Anne Arundel police were tipped off to Christy in April by someone who found images on his computer, authorities said.

Christy is still an employee of the Anne Arundel County Public School System. He has been re-assigned to a position that does not involve contact with children since the allegations surfaced, authorities said.

Police ask anyone with more information about the case to call police at 410-222-3450.

so "someone" found the images on his computer and reported Christy to the police.
was this "someone" an ex-gf?
was this "someone" a former roomate who still owes rent?
what was this "someone" doing searching the mans computer?
Considering the man wasn't attempting to lure a child or anything like that, i dont think what he is accused of merits his photo in the post.

You could find 10 images of child porn on anyones computer (after "someone" put them there).

I wouldn't doubt that this marilynmanson person has hundreds of kiddie porn files on his PC. Seems like his blathery screed has an "I've been there" tone to it.

This is happening all over the country. Go to www.schoolteachernews.com and click on the Scandal page. They also have a map of where the incidents have taken place. In 2010 they found over 400 of these kinds of cases.

and you snalg1, sound like a bitter ex-gf who would rather get their ex-bf arrested on some trumped up charges, then lose a few pounds and get over him.

Dude might as well change his name and move across the country and start his life over after this story.

You have to wonder if the person who "found" them on the computer is the person that put them on the computer. If you are angry at someone, this is an excellent way to destroy them.

You people are funny. If his name was Jose or Daquan, he wouldn't be given the benefit of the doubt on this board.

Well folks, the first tip off that he was a perv is that he is a male elementary school teacher. Case closed.

I would like to jab00 right in the mouth. Put the pipe down before you make these ridiculous statements. As an elementary school counselor and a former teacher as well as the parent of a male elementary school teacher I am offended by this statement. jab00 there are four degrees between my son and myself I doubt after that statement if you even have a GED. Don't lump people by profession, oh excuse me they probably don't offer cultural sensitivity classes where you work...if you do. Not case closed but your mind is not open for business. But I guess we have to have ignorant people in the world or male teachers wouldn't have anything to do.

You people need to do your research before posting...this creeper has been accused of a lot more than the 10 counts above. And it wasn't an exgirlfriend. It was a former roommate who was curious after Christy had been bragging about his extensive porn collection. Thank goodness that roommate had the sense to report this awful man! And as for Swimmer, thank you for being a male educator. I am a kindergarten teacher and I love having males in the industry. With so many kids without fathers, it really helps to have a male influence in the school. I have known many male pe teachers and they are wonderful! This was just an unfortunate case.
