BEAUFORT — A former Carteret County middle school teacher has been arrested on charges related to child porn, the County Sheriff’s Department said Thursday.

Walter Allen Pettit, 52, 175 Old Murdoch Road, Newport, was charged Thursday with two counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and two counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

The former Broad Creek Middle School teacher was arrested following the execution of a search warrant on his home by federal authorities, the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation and sheriff’s officials.

The charges stemmed from allegations that Mr. Pettit downloaded, copied and possessed countless images of child pornography from the Internet.

“The warrants were served after computer forensics analysis by the agencies involved was gathered,” said Chief Deputy Ken Raper.

There is no evidence at this time that the allegations involve any student in this county, according to Mr. Raper.

Mr. Pettit retired in 2008 after having served as band director at Broad Creek Middle School for 13 years.

According to Tabbie Nance, communications director for Carteret County Public Schools, Mr. Pettit is on the school administrations’ approved list as a volunteer substitute teacher and has recently substituted at county schools.

Bond was set at $500,000. He is scheduled for his first court appearance Friday morning. No further information was immediately available.

Yeah, they've arrested how many people lately? This is a ring.... And it is sad. My baby sister is devastated. He has been volunteering in band and gone on every field trip, meet, outing etc with them for 3 years.

He is a retired teacher and could have volunteered in Craven County Schools.

But..According to Gurganus... He has never subbed or volunteered there. Just called the office.

So weird because he was my band teacher from 1989-1992. I'm saddened by this news. He was a great teacher and I wouldn't have my musical skills if not for him. Exploits aside, he was an awesome musician and teacher.
