Youth Supervisor & Teacher From Ormond Arrested For Showing Porn To Boy

By on February 13, 2018 in WNDB News

Ormond Beach, FL – A former youth supervisor and Mainland High School teacher from Ormond Beach was arrested after Volusia County Sheriff’s Office (VCSO) says he showed a 16-year-old boy pornography and performed a sex act in front of the boy.

37-year-old Kern Cox worked as a youth supervisor at Stewart-Marchman-Act Behavioral Healthcare’s Residential Adolescent Program. He was also recently a chorus teacher at Mainland High School in Daytona Beach for a short period of time, according to VCSO. He has since been removed from both positions.

The 16-year-old, one of Cox’s clients at the Residential Adolescent Program, reported to a supervisor at Stewart-Marchman that on December 14, Cox asked the boy to come into his office. According to VCSO, Cox showed the boy pornography, masturbated in front of him, and encouraged the boy to join in.

Cox denies the allegations and says he hasn’t viewed pornography since high school. Video surveillance does show the teenage client going into Cox’s office at 10:08 PM and leaving the office at 10:29 PM on December 14. A search of Cox’s cell phone revealed that multiple pornographic websites were accessed on the phone around that time. One of those videos matched the details provided by the boy.

Cox is charged with showing obscene material to a minor and the use of a child in a sexual performance, VCSO says. He was taken into custody on Tuesday afternoon on $50,000 bond.
