Former Henderson ISD Teacher Indicted

42-year-old James Brent Malone faces 2 child pornography charges, one for possession and another for distribution.

A Federal Grand Jury indicted the former Henderson High School teacher last Wednesday.

Parent Sheryl Sheets says it shocks her that someone children are suppose to trust, could be accused of something like that.

"I never want my kid to be in school. You put your children in school and think they're safe, but they aren't... you never know who they are with" - Sheets, Parent

"According to the Rusk County Sheriff's Department, James Brent Malone was arrested and charged back in January, with possession of child pornography" - Kevin Boyce,

"Nowadays it is scary, it is very hard. You never know what they are going to get" - Sheets, Parent

Investigators say they found at least one image of a child under the age of 12 engaging in sexually explicit activity on Malone's computer hard drive.

Sheryl Sheets says when sending your children to school you have certain expectations of the teacher.

"When you drop them off you expect them to get a good education, be safe, and to be taken care of like they are at home." - Sheets

Malone remains in the Rusk County Jail on $10,000 bond.
