UPDATE: (5:10 P.M.) — A Clark County Principal facing charges of child pornography was in court Wednesday morning.
54-year-old Phillip Todd Wilson was appointed a public defender. The public defender asked the judge lower his bond since he has no criminal history. The judge denied that request and ordered Wilson have no contact with children or Clark County Public Schools.
His bond remains at $25,000 and he’s lodged in the Clark County Detention Center.
In his arrest citation, KSP says a complaint came in from George Rogers Clark High School, which shares the campus with the area technology center, that Wilson had child porn and was sharing it with someone else.
Wilson had several images of child porn, according to the citation.
The school district says it’s “shocked and dismayed” over his arrest and is working with investigators and his employer, the Kentucky Department of Education.
Area technology centers are state operated so he is not employed with the district.
KDE says as soon as the allegations surfaced, Wilson was placed on leave.
