An art teacher at Portland High School has been arrested on suspicion that he viewed child pornography on his home computer.
Gerald White, 44, of Freeport, was arrested Wednesday morning at the school and taken to the Cumberland County Jail, according to Maine State Police. He was released on $500 bail Wednesday afternoon, according to jail officials.
White has been charged with possessing sexually explicit material of someone under the age of 12, a Class C felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
Portland’s interim school superintendent, Jeanne Crocker, said the district only learned of White’s arrest Wednesday morning when he was taken into custody.
