ORANGE COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – Investigators arrested a technology education teacher on child porn charges, according to a news release from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

Robert Jeffrey Kobman, 32, of Locust Grove, is being held without bond in the Central Va. Regional Jail, according to the release.

Investigators searched Kobman’s home computer and electronic equipment on May 19. Kobman was placed on administrative leave from the school system after the county learned about the investigation.

“Any change in Mr. Kobman’s status will depend on the sheriff’s office’s investigation and on our own internal investigation,” Yvonne Dawson, director of human resources for Orange County Public Schools, said in a statement.

Investigators said there is no evidence that any of the children in pornographic images were “local” children.
