West Virginia State Police have arrested a Weston man after finding sexually explicit photographs of juveniles at his Bland Street home.

State Police have charged Floyd Ellsworth Friend, Jr., 40, with one count of use of minors in filming sexually explicit conduct, one count of possessing material depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, and one count of distribution and display to a minor of obscene matter.

Friend is the former Lewis County High School band director, according to Agnes Queen, Lewis County Commissioner.

State Police were investigating Friend on another charge when they discovered 422 suspicious graphics, which included sexually explicit pictures of an underage girl and Friend together, according to a criminal complaint. The pictures were found on Friend's cell phone and the memory card inside the phone.

Friend is being held in Central Regional Jail on $150,000 bail.

Why are you shocked? I'm sure someone has filled you in on why he left LCHS. He should have been put under the jail then, not allowed to prey on more underage girls.

I agree 100% that if he had been in trouble the FIRST time, this wouldn't have happened again!!

Sam ... You got that right .... Check out the bail amounts set for some of the drug offenders ... Several have $300,000 bonds.
Or if you steal from the old people and work in the bank they let you out on a PR bond.
Please someone prove me wrong.

There are 13 and 14 year olds walking around town in thongs and painted up like a bunch of whores and having baby's. Shit these girls know what they have and know how to use it they are just of much to blam them and there parents.

If his children wanted to do the right thing they should stay away from him!It was said that 13 or 14 year old girls dress and run around like hoochies.But it is our responsibility as human beings with actual morals to know the difference! It was said in a previous post from 123abc that these girls dress like prostitutes.Being as that may is not a exuse as these girls bring it apon thereselves.It sounds like that is what you are implying.We all have the power to choose right from wrong even if a 13 year old dresses and acts like a 30 year old does not make it right or exusable.Seriously! the logic of some things is rediculous.I think the man needs to spend the rest of his life in jail! I say this as a loving parent.It sickens me to the core with people like this.Ive know of this person and they are a pathelogical lier and they use people to there benefit,if they knew who he really was they'd put him away alot longer.Its shameful that his kids have to see there father like this for the rest of there lives! Shame on him for having to put them through that.If he honestly loved his kids he wouldnt have kept being a fn idiot and doing it after he got caught the first time!If this was the old days there would have been ways to deal with trash like that.Even getting fired for that and trying to apply at a different school goes to show how self centered this person was and says that he didnt have any plans on stopping!Its even sader that his son has his same name.If that was me id change it.I have no idea what kind of sickness goes through these peoples minds.Com ing from a loving parent if someone tried to do that to my kid they wouldnt be around.Trust me when i say that i have known of this person and they need to lock him up and throw away the key!!! People like that absolutely make me sick !!! But you know they say karmas a bitch and its funny to see that karma comes back for the idiots!!!
