Brandon, Florida -- After a two month investigation, detectives have arrested a Newsome High School math teacher for possession of child pornography.

Hillsborough deputies say detectives with the Internet Predator Unit executed a court authorized search warrant at the residence of David Valesano Jr. on Thursday morning. Four computers and several digital media items were seized.

Computer forensics allegedly revealed that Valesano was in possession of pornography depicting children between the ages of 8 and 13 engaging in sexual activities.

He was arrested and charged with 20 counts of possession of child pornography and was transported to the Hillsborough County jail.

10 News has learned Valesano has been suspended with pay from Newsome High School and a July 30 school board meeting will determine future disciplinary action. He has been employed as a math teacher with the school since 2003 and has had no previous disciplinary problems
