Retired teacher arrested for child pornography


BERWICK, Pa. (WHTM) – A retired elementary school teacher in the Berwick Area School District has been arrested for having a collection of child pornography.

David Shields, 65, was arrested after agents searched his home Thursday and found images of child pornography on his computer, the state attorney general’s office said.

The search came after an electronic service provider discovered in February that a user had uploaded an image of child pornography, and the upload was traced to Shields’s home, the attorney general’s office said.

Shields is charged with multiple counts of sexual abuse of children and one count of criminal use of a communication facility. Bail was set at $150,000, pending a preliminary hearing scheduled for April 23.
