Former BX asst. principal pleads guilty to child porn

Posted: Updated:

A former Bronx assistant principal has pleaded guilty after police say he had pornographic images of teenage boys on a flash drive at the school.

Authorities say Lawrence Gordon, from Mount Saint Michael Academy, entered the plea last week to 10 counts of possessing a sexual performance by a child. He was placed on leave back in February when the images were first discovered.

The school says it's cooperating with police and sent letters home about the situation, but parents say they're outraged by the arrest.

Gordon's next court date for sentencing will be Jan. 26.
