Wellesley Public School Superintendent David Lussier has informed the community that representatives from the US Attorney’s Office and Department of Homeland Security have offered to attend a session next week for parents/students/staff regarding the recent arrest of a now former Wellesley High cross country and assistant track coach who was also a special education teaching assistant at Wellesley Middle School. Framingham resident Walter Johnson was arrested and charged with possession and distribution of child pornography.
Lussier wrote: “We have continued to work closely with federal agents who have assured us that, to date, there is no evidence that any of the alleged criminal activity involves Wellesley students. Knowing that parents, students, and staff may have questions about the investigation and charges, representatives from the U.S. Attorney’s Office and Department of Homeland Security have offered to join us on Tuesday, May 9, from 5-6 PM in the Katherine L. Babson Jr. Auditorium at Wellesley High School. Please note that this is a school meeting for parents, students, and staff only (no media). In the meantime, I want to remind our school community that if you have any questions about the investigation or wish to report something, please call 617-748-3274, a number that is being monitored by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.”
