Teacher faces charges of child porn, enticement

May 20, 2011

BURRILLVILLE — A 23-year-old teacher and town resident was arrested early yesterday morning and charged with one count each of Enticement of Children, Child Pornography Prohibited and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor.
At 5:40 a.m., detectives and officers from the Burrillville Police Department, the R.I. State Police ICAC Team (Internet Crimes Against Children) and a deputy from the U.S. Marshal’s Office served a search warrant at the home of Justin W. Menoche, at 1871 Victory Highway.
Seized in the raid were a laptop computer, cell phone and an external hard drive, police said.
Menoche is a full-time substitute teacher in the Coventry School System and a part-time substitute teacher in the Burrillville School System.
This crime involves a juvenile student from the Burrillville School System, police said. Menoche was using the social network Facebook with the profile of 16-year-old “Jay Mosbey” to contact juvenile students and had in his possession “child pornography,” according to police.
He was arraigned in 6th District Court, where no plea was entered. He was released on personal recognizance. This case is still under investigation by the Burrillville Police Department.
