Sunnyside School Math Coach Suspended Amid Child Porn Probe

A math coach at the Sunnyside School in Garfield has been suspended with pay pending the outcome of a federal investigation into child pornography found on school computers the man was using in his home.

School officials learned over the weekend that federal investigators seized several computers from the home of the man who authorities believe was using them to correspond with an undercover agent posing as a woman with children. Charges have not yet been filed.

There was no immediate indication that Pittsburgh Public Schools students were involved. The Sunnyside School on Stanton Avenue is for students from kindergarten through eighth grade.
