Coach faces child porn charges

A high school wrestling coach in Montgomery County is facing charges related to child pornography.

Prosecutors say Homeland Security investigators received a tip last October about an email address used to upload pornographic images of children.

Investigators say Thomas Porter admitted to owning the address and viewing images of child porn.

Investigators say they also found more than 50 images of child porn on Porter's computers.

Porter is an assistant wrestling coach at Neshaminy High School.

He also coaches for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Wrestling Team.

It operates in Bucks, Chester and Montgomery Counties.
