A high school paraprofessional in Midwood has been charged with child pornography and sextortion, according to authorities.
Police say Brian Quinones worked as a paraprofessional at Midwood High School just months ago and was arrested Wednesday. At this time, there is no evidence showing that any students were victims, but it is reported Quinones enticed minors to send him sexually explicit videos on apps like WhatsApp and then threatened to publicly release them.
Midwood High School removed Quinones as an employer last October when they learned about the investigation.
