KENTWOOD- The high school band instructor for the town's high school faces child pornography charges.

Kenneth Dillon, 64, was arrested by Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's deputies after a search of his house Friday morning. Deputies said they found sexually explicit images of children, including a video where an 8-year-old is having sex with an adult.

A spokesperson for the sheriff's office said detectives searched Dillon's house on a "proactive online child pornography investigation."

On the Kentwood High School website, Dillon said he enjoys working with students.

"I think that I am more excited about it than the students I teach," he posted in his biography. "I watched them grow and learn daily. I would not trade this experience for anything."

The school system could not be reached for comment for this post. WBRZ.com news partner ActionNews17.com also reported the arrest and were also unable to get a comment from the school system.
