“James William Nugent II, 27, of Alexandria, Virginia, has been charged with 13 counts of child pornography.”
James William Nugent II, of Alexandria, Virginia, was criminally charged on Wednesday on 13 counts of child pornography and taking indecent liberties with a child, according to Fox 5. Nugent was employed as a school resource teacher at Groveton Elementary School in Alexandria.
Police said that officers were dispatched to an intersection in Stratford Landing around 1:30 p.m. on Saturday after a juvenile had reported that a man had lured them into his van and exposed himself.
On Wednesday morning, Nugent was arrested and taken into custody. Authorities ordered a search warrant and officers allegedly found child sex abuse materials in Nugent's home.
Police said they are investigating additional cases and believe Nugent exposed himself to four additional children within the past two weeks near Stratford Elementary School. Detectives said the victim in this case does not attend the school Nugent has been employed at, the outlet reports.
Nugent was also in the cast of “Young Frankenstein” that is currently showing at The Little Theatre of Alexandria. In a statement posted on its Facebook page Thursday, the theater said Nugent has been released from the production, effective immediately.
