HENDERSON — A Henderson High School English teacher has been arrested at a home in northwest Henderson and charged with possession of child pornography. That’s the report from KETK and the Longview News-Journal. James Brent Malone, 42, of Henderson was arrested around 7:30 Friday night when deputies said he was “in possession of more than three images of child pornography,” according to the probable cause affidavit for his arrest.
“The individual has been arraigned but is not currently on an HISD campus at this time. The individual has been placed on administrative leave for the foreseeable future,” said Stacey Sullivan, director of human resources and communication for the school district, in a prepared statement. Malone was held Friday afternoon in the Rusk County Jail under a $10,000 bond. “The safety of our children is our utmost priority, and HISD will do everything we can to protect the well being of Henderson students,” Sullivan said.
