October 25, 2017

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — A federal grand jury has indicted a former Virginia high school teacher on child pornography charges.

The indictment issued Wednesday charges 57-year-old Richard Alan Wellbeloved-Stone of Charlottesville with three counts of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

Federal authorities filed a complaint against Wellbeloved Stone last month after he was arrested and charged in state court with 19 counts of producing child pornography and one count of aggravated sexual battery.

Wellbeloved-Stone was suspended from his job as an environmental sciences teacher at Charlottesville High School after he was arrested by Charlottesville police in July.
