A The administrator of a Delaware private school has been arrested and charged with five counts of trafficking child pornography.
Police arrived at Tower Hill School in Wilmington on Tuesday with a warrant to investigate William Ushler, the high school admissions director, for possession of child pornography.
Upon his arrest, Ushler was fired and banned from campus, according to an email from school principal Elizabeth Speers obtained by the Delaware Newspaper.
“While we do not anticipate any finds indicating that a member of the Tower Hill community has been harmed, our thoughts and prayers are with the children whose images are depicted and who are victims of such deplorable crimes,” Speers said. .
