Former Junior High School Teacher from Missouri Indicted for Receiving Child Porn

A former Lebanon Junior High School teacher has been indicted by a federal grand jury for receiving child pornography over the Internet.

Evert Henry, 41, of Lebanon, Mo., was charged in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Springfield, Mo., on Monday, Feb. 23, 2016.

Henry was a teacher in the Lebanon R-3 School District at the junior high school during the time of the alleged offense. The indictment alleges that Henry received child pornography over the Internet from Jan. 1, 2011, to Jan. 13, 2016.

Dickinson cautioned that the charge contained in this indictment is simply an accusation, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charge must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney James J. Kelleher. It was investigated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Lebanon, Mo., Police Department.
