A former high school teacher has been indicted on federal charges of possessing child pornography in two Kentucky counties.
Kenneth R. Shadoan was already facing 25 state counts of possessing child pornography in Bourbon County after he was arrested by Paris police in May. Shadoan was also accused of inappropriate contact with a 17-year-old male student. He has pleaded not guilty to those charges.
The Commonwealth Journal of Somerset reports that Shadoan, 31, was fired from the Paris Independent School system after his May arrest.
The July 1 federal court indictment alleges that between May of 2007 and May 2009, Shadoan possessed images of minors engaged in sexually explicit activity in Bourbon County and Pulaski County.
Shadoan’s attorney, Donald D. Waggener, didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.
