Phillip Todd Wilson had removed books parents objected to because of gay characters and controversial content. A high school principal who once banned books with LGBTQ content and other factors parents and administrators found objectionable has now been arrested on child pornography charges. Phillip Todd Wilson, principal of the Clark County Area Technology Center, a public vocational school in Winchester, Ky., was arrested Tuesday by state police, Lexington TV station WKYT reports. Police say he possessed 15 child porn images and had shared them with others. He is charged with 15 counts of possession of matter portraying sexual performance by a minor, and 15 counts of distribution of such material. He appeared in court Wednesday and pleaded not guilty. In 2008, as principal of Montgomery County High School in Mount Sterling, Ky., he joined with other administrators to remove several young-adult novels that had been listed as optional reading in English classes taught by Risha Mullins.
