SD teacher arrested for distributing child porn

On April 19, David Gordon Weaks, a San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) teacher, was arrested for distributing child porn. Officials found more than one computer and devices the 59-year-old had used to share the content.

Weaks worked at Bayview Terrace Elementary School for 17 years. After it had closed down in 2014, he became a 5th grade science teacher at Rosa Parks Elementary School until his arrest. The school district has been in full cooperation, according to a SDUSD spokesman.

With police cars roaming the neighborhood for Weaks, one of his neighbors had seen the arrest firsthand.

“I thought I saw David against the garage with his hands up and then more cars came, and they were here for a good three hours,” Weak’s neighbor said.

Department of Homeland Security has been conducting an investigation, in which Weaks has been a suspect since March. He was identified from his IP address that had been linked to a file sharing program. Federal agents announced that Weaks admitted to sharing such files and possession on his hard drive.
