A former Nassau County teacher already in jail for a charge of having a sexual relationship with a teen is now facing new charges.
32-year-old Daniel Wright was arrested in June. The then-Fernandina Beach High School teacher was accused of having several sexual encounters with a student before she had turned 18. The Nassau County Sheriff’s Office confirms to WOKV that Wright’s cell phone has been searched as part of their ongoing investigation.
“Discovered on the cell phone were several pictures of minors in compromising and indecent positions,” says Undersheriff George Lueders.
Wright has been charged with one count of sharing transmission material to minors and 33 counts of possession of child pornography. The arrest report obtained by WOKV shows videos and images were found on Wright’s phone showing “minor” victims performing various sex acts.
Investigators believe the pictures were taken between 2010 and recently, although it’s unclear at this time whether they are also students at the schools where Wright worked. While some of the victims have been identified, Lueders says they are still working to identify all of the victims.
Wright will appear in court for an arraignment on 8/21.
