Delta, B.C. school pyschologist charged with child porn in U.S.

The Delta School District has confirmed that school psychologist William Brook has been charged with child pornography related offences in the U.S.

Delta School District spokesperson Danica Michaud says Brook has not been at work since police told them  last week about the charges.

" At this moment, he is not at work and I can not tell you about his employee status," she said,  "but we take these charges very seriously and under the School Act,  there are provisions to suspend employees for such incidents."
