— Oxford police arrested a Granville County school teacher Monday after they say they found child pornography on his computer.

Larry Wayne Morgan, of Seaman Street, was charged with 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. He was released on a $20,000 bond.

Chief J.M. Wolford said that tips spurred the investigation into Morgan by Oxford police and State Bureau of Investigation. Investigators found computer files and discs belonging to Morgan that depicted underage youth engaged in sexual acts, he said.

Wolford said there has been no evidence that Morgan had physical contact with a Granville student or any minor. He is the sole focus of the investigation.

Morgan taught seventh-grade at Northern Granville Middle School in Oxford and had been with the school system for several years, said Allen Jordan, assistant superintendent with the Granville County School System.

He was suspended Oct. 7 when the school system learned of the investigation, Jordan said. His continued employment depends on the outcome of the investigation.

    Larry is a good guy and anyone that has met him knows that this is a stretch. Unfortunately the damage has already been done. I wonder whether this is something that his estranged wife has set up in order to get back at him. Sad when people have to resort to destroying people's lives because they cannot move past things.

    Let's don't jump to conclusions people. This nice man just might be innocent of all charges. Porn is not always porn. My wife takes pictures of me naked in the shower all the time and sends them to friends of hers. That is not considered porn. This man just might have some innocent pictures of children not in any clothing. But surely not pornography I am pretty sure.

    Living on Seaman Street is just wrong to begin with but add on "Glass Half Full" "wet noodle" comment goes hand in hand.

    Professor...I have read numerous comments you have made to golo,and I really try to give you the benefit of the doubt..everyone is entitled to an opinion, right ? But your joking right ? I guess LEO should have waited until he raped a child and then be justified for arresting the slim ball.

    Since he did not "bother" any child, he should be able to maintain his job. His personal life should not have an effect. Don't make a mountain out of an ant hill.

    If the computer was in his own home, then the man should not have been charged with anything. On the otherhand, if the computer was at his work, then, he was wrong to such mess on it.
