A special education teacher was arrested for possession of child pornography on Thursday. 

Henry Tedeschi, 54, of West Warwick, who is a special education teacher at the Morton Middle School in Fall River was arrested for possession of child porn after a court authorized search warrant was executed at his home on 43 Bratt Lane on Thursday morning. 

The Investigation 

ICAC Task Force members recently received a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) regarding an individual possessing child pornography in his email account. The Internet connection at 43 Bratt Lane, West Warwick was identified as being used to access the email account in question.

Earlier today, ICAC Task Force members executed a search warrant at Tedeschi’s residence and identified him as the alleged owner of the email account. Members of the Task Force seized eight (8) items of digital media for further forensic analysis, and additional charges may be pending. 

In addition to currently being a special education teacher in Fall River, Massachusetts, Tedeschi has worked in both the Massachusetts and Rhode Island school systems for approximately 30 years. 

At this time, there is no evidence of any inappropriate contact between Tedeschi and any of his current or former students. However, the public is encouraged to contact a member of the Rhode Island State Police/ICAC Task Force at 401-921-1170 if he/she has information that may forward this investigation.
