FBI agents arrested on Thursday Whispering Palms School principal Thomas Weindl for allegedly using a netbook to view several child pornographic materials mostly on 11-year-old girls.
Weindl is expected to be taken to the U.S. District Court for the NMI today, Friday, at 1:30pm, on charges of receipt of child pornography and accessing child pornography with intent to view.
According to the complaint, the Public School System-issued netbook was issued to the son of an FBI special agent. The special agent and his family are transferring to the U.S. mainland so the agent recently gave back the netbook to Weindl.
The special agent, however, had installed in 2011 an “e-blaster” on the netbook in an effort to monitor his son's internet use. E-blaster is a computer and Internet monitoring software program.
After the agent surrendered the netbook recently to the principal, he was surprised receiving “e-blaster” reports indicating that the netbook was accessing the Internet showing child pornographic materials.
More details to follow.
