Stanley Keith Johnson is accused of producing and receiving child pornography. The U.S. Attorney’s Office declined to elaborate on the accusations.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Johnson is a bus driver, but Cobb Schools spokesman Jay Dillon said he is a field coordinator with the district and has been with Cobb since 1989.
“He was a field coordinator, which is a supervisor of bus routes for a group of schools, and had been since 2004,” Dillon said Thursday afternoon.
He could not say if Johnson was a bus driver before becoming a field coordinator.
Dillon said the district learned about the charges earlier in the week and that Johnson will be fired.
He wouldn’t reveal Johnson’s salary because it is a “personnel matter,” but said all employees undergo background checks.
“(The arrest) has nothing to do with the district or his job with the district … (or) with any schools or his role with the school district, so that’s good to know from our perspective,” Dillon said.
Johnson’s first court appearance is scheduled for this morning before U.S. Magistrate Judge Justin Anand. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.
