A report from the Journal-News explains the Jefferson County, West Virginia, sheriff’s office announced the charges against Edgar Conn, formerly a Jefferson High teacher.

The report said was arrested over the weekend for being a fugitive, and is facing eight counts of sexual exploitation of a child in Cobb County, Georgia.

Jefferson County Sgt. Joe Forman also got an arrest warrant for Conn that accuses him distributing and exhibiting material depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, soliciting a minor via computer, and distribution and display to minors of obscene matter.

The case was developed after a juvenile in Georgia told authorities he had sent sexually explicit images to an adult in Jefferson County.

Authorities explained the 17-year-old boy believed he was communicating with an adult female named “Megan.”

Investigators confirmed they obtained a search warrant for Conn’s smart phone and a forensic examiner reported discovering text messages that substantiated the allegations.

Conn was being held in jail pending a preliminary hearing.

At the Geller Report was the stark admonition, “Get your children out of government schools.”

The report said school officials removed Conn from his teaching duties as soon as the case became public.

“JCS immediately notified the West Virginia Department of Education for the purpose of licensure review and nationwide notification purposes to prevent the former employee from being able to teach,” the school said.
