State police on Friday, Jan. 5 arrested a Silver Spring public elementary school cafeteria worker on 10 counts of child pornography-related charges. The school's principal sent a letter to parents and guardians of children who attend the school informing them of the arrest that same day.
Officers of the Maryland State Police charged Cloverly Elementary School employee Sean Kelley with seven counts of possession of imagery of an individual under the age of 16 engaged in sexual conduct and three counts of distribution of imagery of a minor engaged in sexual conduct.
According to a Jan. 5 letter sent by Cloverly Elementary School Principal Melissa Brunson, authorities believe the images associated with the charges were downloaded from the internet and are not of Montgomery County Public School students.
MCPS Spokesman Derek Turner said Kelley was placed on administrative leave Sept. 12.
