Derrick Allan Gossett, a former music teacher at Anderson Elementary in Houston before his resignation this week, faces child pornography charges after his disturbing plot to lure boys was discovered, say police.
The 32-year-old was arrested as he made his way to school Tuesday after the parents of a 12-year-old boy alerted police to his alleged ploy.
A search of Gossett’s home in Humble revealed several images of nude boys Gossett knew from his work in the Spring Independent School District, detectives said.
Police said he would send the boys generic pornography of young females he found online as bait while identifying them as belonging to a former classmate.
“The Facebook profile was allegedly engineered and operated so that a 12-year-old boy believed he was conversing with a juvenile female, whom he knew as a former classmate of his,” said the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office in a news release.
The girl has since been identified and interviewed by police.
Detectives said Gossett admitted to the deplorable crime after he was arrested.
