Judd: Investigation into coach started with lost thumb drive
LAKE GIBSON -- 
A Lake Gibson High School teacher and coach is facing child pornography charges.

According to the Polk County Sheriff's Office, James Shannon Arnett, 41, an ESE teacher and assistant football coach, is facing charges.

Polk Sheriff Grady Judd said Arnett has been charged with three felonies (2 counts of possession of child pornography and a count of using the internet to engage in sexual conduct). Judd added the last charge is still being investigated.

Judd said a student told officials about a computer thumb drive Arnett had that contained pictures.

An investigation revealed images of child "erotica", photographs of nude females, downloaded pictures from the internet and also pictures of clothed female Lake Gibson High students, Judd said. He said the pictures of the students appeared to be taken without their knowledge.

"He is cooperating (with authorities)" Judd said. "We arrested him yesterday afternoon after school. He admitted to everything except the child pornography.

"He told us he had a problem. He has got more than one problem. We have now arranged for him to have a problem with the criminal justice system - and we're going to be a big problem for him."

Judd said part of the ongoing investigation would be to talk to students who know or had dealings with Arnett.

I went to High School with Shannon and a couple of years in Clay County!!!!
It makes me wonder how many other Teachers are secretly exploiting Pre-Teen and Teenage students!!!
I guess there are people who have a problem with Pornagraphy!!! This is not just about having a Pornagraphy problem....he was a Teacher, Leader and Mentor to these students and he exploited, took photos of the young girls at this high school, his problem goes way beyond a "Problem with Pornagraphy."
This make me wonder how many of our Teachers and Educators use their authority and trust to manipulate, exploit young innocent girls/boys!!!!
As a mother of a Pre-Teen daughter, I worry and pray that the Teachers in Clay County do not have this same, so called, "Problem."
I hope that this will raise awareness among parents, students, and Educators in Clay County and in our Nation!!!!

Concerned parent, I was always told the one who yells the loudest is the one who worries they may be next. Screaming out someone's guilt my make you feel a bit more relaxed but only delays the inevitable. Are you guilty of anything? I not only feel sorry for Shannon, which I remind you the facts are not known completely at this time but he most certainly has been convicted by everyone that has herd or seen the media coverage, but I also feel sorry for you for assuming your child doesn't have the courage to report any teacher that may violate or abuse a students trust. I agree that it is a terrible situation and in no way am I trying to justify Shannon's actions if he is actually guilty but I think this is the problem with our community right now, assuming the worst in any situation involving our Clay County sons and daughters, when allegations are made. Just like the Clay 8, and the Ritchie situation, most people love it when someone is accused of wrong doing regardless of the fact of guilt or innocence. And of course people have to make statements about how they know for a fact of their guilt when in all factuality they have never met the individual in question. Personally I hope for the best in these situations and believe until proven otherwise that all are innocent. I just wish our community would support each other as strong as they try to belittle other people or emphensize how guilty someone is cause he/she said they were.

I want to take this opportunity to attempt to address the concerns shared by others who have posted. Education is an important profession and many teachers make significant and important contributions to help our students grow, develop, and become successful in life.

I regret that another shameful incident tars the profession but too many teachers have misused the trust bestowed upon them that we now have a hard time trusting our schools to be safe from predators.

I urge parents and caregivers to talk with your student, ask them how they are doing in school, ask them how their day went, ask them if they are subject to bullying, ask them if they are being made to be uncomfortable by remarks or advancements of others.

This is too important of a subject to stick our heads in the sand and hope it isn't or doesn't happen in our schools. Let's make sure that it is not happening and if it does, please make sure that it is reported to the police and appropriate authorities to better protect our kids.

I know Shannon and I was shocked that he was arrested.

These "Secret Sins" invariably can be linked to easy - access internet porn which becomes an addiction and requires more and more to get the same thrill...just like alcohol and drugs.

Dr. Kishore was a fine doctor, until he fell into the trap of internet porn and escalated to his crimes, for which he is being rightfully punished.

The internet can be a powerful tool for learning and business, or it can be a powerful evil for those ensnared in its temptations.

Beware all Ye who surf the web.

What do you say about the fact that they put themselves in the situations they are in? They are all guilty to some extent for their poor decisions. You my friend can take the innocent until proven guilty and shove it. Mr. Arnett, Mr. Farmer as well as the Clay 8 were guilty or the feds/authorities wouldn't have taken any action. So ramble your hogwash to someone else!!!

Shannon has a beautiful family and I feel soory for them.

Can you imagine the humiliation of having your children quizzed by police officials or psychiatrists asking them if their Daddy ever touched or molested them?

Shannon will most likely lose his family, his teaching certificate, his income, his freedom, and will forever be registered as a sex offender.

His wife will lose her home, her income (while here, she was a stay-at-home mother), and her dignity. The children will be irreparably hurt emotionally and socially.

Shannon's family are also the innocent victims of this.

At the very least we should keep his family in our prayers.

Also, everyone should stop and think before surfing porn on the internet. The pleasure cannot be worth all the pain.
