Reports say deputies arrested the 46-year-old Shawn Fitzgerald a teacher and varsity soccer coach at Lakeland High School, on 408 counts of child pornography.

The records show the video uploaded on the KIK Messenger app showed a young female (approximately 10-12 years old) performing oral sex on an apparent adult male. Deputies found 408 images of child pornography of both boys and girls on Fitzgerald’s phone.

“We saw horrific acts.” “Everything from children as young as 10-months-old and that were engaged in some form of illicit, horrible, sexual conduct as a baby all the way up to the early teens,” said  Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.

Deputies said so far there is no evidence that Fitzgerald was a sexual predator in the sense that he carried out illegal acts with children. But the investigation is ongoing. “We will bring this man to justice,” Judd vowed. “Our goal is that he sits in prison for a very long time. Our prayer is that there are no child victims. Our other prayer is that we can identify these children who have already been victimized.”

Reports say Fitzgerald is being held on a more than $2 million bond

  1. I would love free Disney tickets! My 8yo has never been and I have been wanting to take him to Disney for about a yr and a half, but I can’t afford to right now. His birthday is Jan 17, 2021 and he has done very good in school and at home. Despite the fact the world is in an uproar. Please give me the chance to give my son the best birthday gift I could give my son! Thanks for the consideration.
