Pawtucket teacher arrested at his Warwick home on child porn charge 

RI State Police arrested Pawtucket High School English teacher George Grimes, 46, of Warwick May 22, charging him with possession of child pornography.

Last Thursday, members of the Rhode Island Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force arrested Grimes, of 787 Narragansett Parkway after receiving a complaint from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that an individual was uploading images of child pornography to a cloud-based storage account.

Members of the ICAC Task Force investigated the complaint and traced the reported activity to Grimes. A court-authorized search warrant was executed at Grimes’ home, where the alleged child pornography was located. Officers seized numerous pieces of digital media for further analysis.

Grimes is employed as an English teacher at Charles E. Shea High School located at 485 East Ave., in Pawtucket. There is no evidence that indicates Mr. Grimes has had any inappropriate contact with children, according to State Police.

Grimes was arraigned before the Honorable Associate Judge William Clifton in Third Division District Court. He was released on $10,000 personal recognizance with special conditions including no Internet access and no contact with children.

The Rhode Island Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force actively engages in investigative efforts to identify subjects involved in child exploitation-related activities. The Rhode Island ICAC Task Force is comprised of members of the Rhode Island State Police Computer Crimes Unit along with detectives from local police departments, including the Warwick Police Department.
