Orange County school employee to be arraigned on child porn charges

Posted:

WESTMINSTER, Calif. (AP) - A maintenance worker for the Huntington Beach City School District faces charges of allegedly possessing and distributing child porn.

The Los Angeles Times reports (http://lat.ms/1hebfMR) 51-year-old Roger Scott Hewson will be arraigned Monday on one count of possession and control of child pornography and one count of distributing obscene matter.

District Superintendent Gregg Haulk said Friday that Hewson, of Fountain Valley, was put on unpaid leave after being arrested in November.

Haulk said Hewson, a painter for the district, was not often around children and usually painted when school was not in session.

If convicted, he faces more than three years in state prison and would be required to register as a sex offender for life.

He is out on $100,000 bail.
