WINCHESTER, Ky. (CBS Local) — A former Kentucky school principal who made headlines 10 years ago for trying to ban classroom books with “homosexual” content has been indicted on child pornography charges. Phillip Todd Wilson, 54, of Winchester, was arrested on 30 charges of child pornography-related offenses in August, but a grand jury indicted him on fewer charges, 17 in all, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported Tuesday.

Wilson was principal of the Clark County Area Technology Center, which offers high school vocational courses and is on the campus of George Rogers Clark High School in Winchester.

A spokeswoman for the Kentucky Department of Education, which oversees the technology center, said Wilson “is no longer an employee of the Department of Education.”

In 2009, Wilson was the principal of Montgomery County High School in Mount Sterling when he was part of an effort to remove several young-adult novels that parents claimed covered topics such as sex, child abuse and drug use.

The four books challenged were “Twisted” by Laurie Halse Anderson, “Deadline” by Chris Crutcher, “Lessons from a Dead Girl” by Jo Knowles and “Unwind” by Neal Shusterman.

The novels were listed as optional reading in English classes but eventually pulled from the curriculum.
