Local teacher court hearing

High School teacher, Jeffrey Richards, charged with possession and distribution of child pornography made his first court appearance Friday afternoon.

The 63-year old taught at schools in Escambia, Santa Rosa, and Okaloosa Counties.
Most of his 40 year career was spent at Milton High School.

An FBI investigator testified saying they found hundreds of pictures of girls between the ages of seven and thirteen on Richards' home computer. Also found were two videos and an audio recording of the subjects posed as a student and a teacher having sex.

Richards has resigned from his position and remains in Escambia jail, with no bond.
