Former youth facility employee accused of showing porn (KSL)

LA VERKIN — A staff member at a non-profit school for "struggling teens" has been arrested and charged for allegedly showing the students pictures and recordings of his sexual relations.

Donald Brown, Jr., 45, was charged in St. George's 5th District Court on Wednesday with 10 counts of dealing in harmful materials to minors, all third-degree felonies.

Brown was a staff member of the Youth Foundation when law enforcement officers were contacted on Tuesday to investigate allegations that he had been showing "numerous boys" pornographic images, according to charging documents.

Investigators talked to six boys at the school who said they had seen between 15 to 50 of Brown's videos and pictures, court records state. The videos were of Brown having sex with his wife and another woman, according to charging documents.

Police interviewed Brown's wife, who is also a staff member at the school. She told them she was aware that a camera was set up in their bedroom and Brown would sometimes record their sexual activity, charges state. The camera was linked to Brown's phone where the videos were downloaded.

When detectives interviewed Brown, he said he "did sit and talk to the boys in great detail about his sex life" and that's probably how they knew what he was doing. He then said the juveniles may have seen pornography on his phone by accident.

Brown was arrested and booked into the Purgatory Correctional Facility in Hurricane on $50,000 bond. He was also fired from the facility.

He made an initial appearance in court on Wednesday. His next hearing was scheduled for Aug. 5.

Police: Youth Home Worker Shows Troubled Teens Pornography Of Himself
By Ladd Egan

(KUTV) An employee at a southern Utah youth home for troubled teens has been arrested on charges that he showed boys at the school pornographic videos and pictures of himself.

Prosecutors Wednesday charged Donald M. Brown, Jr, 48, of St. George with ten counts of dealing in harmful material to a minor, a third degree felony.

Brown worked as a youth supervisor at the Youth Foundation Success Academy in LaVerkin.

“There were multiple kids involved as well as multiple offenses,” said LaVerkin Police Chief Lloyd Watkins. “It was a personal cell phone that he had that he’d bring in to work that he had images and videos on that he would show the kids.”

Police detectives write in court documents that six boys at the youth home confirmed seeing between 15 and 50 pornographic videos and images on Brown’s cell phone.

“They described that they were shown videos of Don having sex with his wife and another woman,” a detective wrote in the probable cause statement used in Brown’s arrest. “They were each very descriptive in the images they saw as well as days, and locations.”

Brown’s wife is also an employee at the school, according to police, and confirmed with the detectives that she was involved in the sexual acts the boys described and that she knew her husband was filming the threesomes.

When questioned, detectives say Brown initially denied showing the boys any illicit images but that he did “talk to the boys in great detail about his sex life,” according to the arrest narrative report filed in court documents.

Later in questioning, detectives write that “Donald then admitted that they had seen pornography on his phone ‘several times,’ but that every time was an accident. He then stated that he had ‘A LOT of accidents.’”

Chief Watkins says officers seized Brown’s cell phone and will further analyze the videos and images contained inside once they receive a search warrant. He says detectives are also trying to figure out if Brown had a motive for allegedly showing the boys the images.

“At this point we don’t believe there was any physical contact or anything like that,” Chief Watkins said. “The person that’s supposed to take care of the kids is the one that’s actually abusing them in this manner.”

LaVerkin’s police chief and an employee at the front desk of the school both said Brown was fired from the school Tuesday, the day of his arrest.

“The school does a good job,” Chief Watkins said. “They screen their employees the best they can but like any other business, you’re going to have your employees that go sideways on you.”

Brown had an initial arrangement Wednesday afternoon and is still being held on a bail set at $50,000.

Police: Staffer at school for troubled teens accused of sharing pornography of himself to students
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, August 01, 2013 - 6:40 pm EDT

LAVERKIN, Utah — A former staffer at a southern Utah school for troubled teens is accused of showing students pornographic pictures and videos of himself.

The Deseret News reports Donald Brown Jr. was charged Wednesday with 10 counts of dealing in harmful materials to minors.

LaVerkin police say they were contacted Tuesday amid reports that Brown had shown pornography to students at the Youth Foundation. Investigators say they interviewed six boys between the ages of 13 and 15 who said they saw the images of Brown having sex with his wife and another woman.

Brown's wife reportedly told police she knew a camera was set up in their bedroom.

Police say Brown told them the boys may have seen the pornography on his phone by accident.

It's unclear whether Brown has an attorney.
