JUPITER, Fla. (CBS12) — A school janitor from Jupiter is facing child porn charges.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office arrested 56-year-old Timothy Scott on 15 counts of possession of obscene material depicting child sexual conduct.

According to the arrest report, the investigation began in July when the South Florida Internet Crimes Against Children noticed downloaded files of child pornography from an IP address in Jupiter. On July 19, investigators used a search warrant to search Scott’s office and computer. Deputies said on two separate occasions Scott tried to get to his office computer. As a result, PBSO Forensic investigators did an on-scene preview of Scott’s computer and found files “indicative of child pornography.” Scott denied any knowledge of the file sharing program or the child pornography files found on his computer, the report said.

Scott worked as a facilities manager for the Els for Autism Foundation where he oversaw the facilities of an entire campus where there are two public charter schools. One of which is the Renaissance Learning Center in Jupiter.

According to Marlene Sotelo, the COO for the Els for Autism Foundation, Scott has been terminated from his position as facilities manager.
