Lee Whitehead, 34, was arrested at Anna High School on Friday by the Richardson Police Department. Whitehead has been charged with four counts of possession of child pornography, which is a third degree felony.
Whitehead has taught science at Anna High School for the last two years. Richardson Police Detectives said they received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which started the investigation that led to a search warrant at Whitehead's residence. There, police found the child pornography. Whitehead has been booked into the Richardson City Jail. As of Saturday at 6:00 p.m. he was still in jail with a bond set at $100,000.
Melane Woodbury, a spokesperson for the Anna Independent School District, said the district is working with authorities.
“The arrest is not school-related,” Woodbury said in an emailed statement. “The district will be working with authorities to determine if any disciplinary action is required.”
