BUFFALO – A teacher from the Clymer Central School district in Chautauqua County has been placed on administrative leave after he was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Buffalo on Friday reported that Homeland Security Investigations received information that an online username “EJD” was active on an international child pornography website.
The investigators traced the account to 60-year-old Scott Aikens, who is the agriculture teacher at Clymer. A search of his home on Route 474 led to the confiscation of multiple electronic devices and agents allegedly saw pornographic images of children on his computer screen.
Clymer was contacted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Friday and Aikens was placed on administrative leave immediately.
Aikens is being held pending a detention hearing Tuesday.
