Teacher Arrested Again, Faces 1,557 Porn Counts

February 11th, 2011 by Staff

ORLANDO, Fla. — An Orange County teacher has been arrested for the second time in as many weeks and charged with 1,557 counts of child pornography.
Stephen Wise, 43, was arrested last week by Orange County authorities and charged with 10 counts of child pornography. He posted bond and was released from the Orange County Jail on Thursday night.
Wise is an employee of Orange County Schools. He was a language arts and drama teacher at Odyssey Middle School, and most recently he taught video production and drama at Lake Nona High School.
Wise was relieved of duty, with pay.
Osceola County authorities filed the latest charges and is now in custody in the Osceola County Jail.
The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office said detectives found at least 1,557 images of child pornography on electronic equipment owned by Wise. Detectives found more than 3,000 images on Wise’s computer, but were only able to verify that 1,557 of them were in fact of children. All of the 1,557 images were of children under the age of 12, the Sheriff’s Office said. Some were of children as young as 4. Authorities said none of the images in question involve Wise’s students.
Authorities said the charges were filed in Osceola County because they said Wise transmitted the images from his Orange County home to people online in Osceola County.
Wise was also an assistant scout master with the Boy Scouts, but that ended on Thursday.
