Dayton ISD music teacher charged with possessing child pornography

- Investigators say that a Dayton ISD music teacher and Boy Scout leader has been accused of possessing child pornography. Harris County Constable Mark Herman's Office Criminal Investigations Division said they received information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about a person in the Humble are. The suspect has been identified as Joshua Janecka.

Further investigation reveals that Janecka was also associated with the Boy Scouts of America, as a scout leader, and swim instructor for children for several years.

Based on the investigation, a search warrant for Janecka’s residence was executed in the early hours of April 04, 2018, and yielded an abundance of images, literature, and videos of children being sexually exploited and sexually assaulted. Investigators also went to his school and seized his computer for analysis. Authorities say the investigation will continue with detailed forensic exams of the remaining electronic devices found in Janecka’s possession in order to determine the magnitude of the child pornography.

“As a result of the child pornography recovered at his home, Joshua Janecka was arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail, charged with five counts of Possession of Child Pornography and one count of Promotion of Child Pornography. His total bond was set at $22,500.00.
