Raymond 'Foxy' Gagnon Charged with Possession of Child Porn
Authorities spent Saturday at the home of a former Plattsburgh teacher arrested on allegations that he knowingly possessed child pornography.
Raymond "Foxy" Gagnon, who, for years, was an eighth-grade teacher at Stafford Middle School, was arraigned in federal court in Plattsburgh on Saturday. More recently, he wrote a column for the Press Republican and did sports commentary for a public access station.
According to an affidavit, Gagnon told investigators there were 25 pornographic videos and 100 pictures on his computer.
Police said Gagnon downloaded the images from a European Web site and visited the site every few days.
Gagnon told investigators he did it for "personal sexual gratification."
