Former student saw teacher's porn

Posted: Updated:
LAKELAND (FOX 13) -

A Polk County man says his eight grade teacher would get squirmy when anyone would approach his computer.

"Anytime me or anyone else would approach his desk , he would be clicking out of those windows, or he'd get up and be real uppity and stuff and acting all weird about it," Jack MacHill told FOX 13 on Tuesday.

MacHill says seven years ago when he was at Union Academy in Bartow, he saw adult pornography on the school computer of his teacher, Lawrence Hughes.

He says he brought it up during a meeting over his grades between his principal and his mom, but no one pursued it any further.

Last week, Hughes was arrested after Polk detectives found twenty images of child pornography on his two school issued computers.

Hughes was fired on Tuesday.

He has been in jail since his arrest.

MacHill's mom, Joan, says when her son mentioned the pornography years ago, she thought he was lying. Now she has a new perspective on his truthfulness.

"I owe my son the largest apology anyone could ever give," she said.
