Child porn case: More counselors at Gardens school as additional victims sought

A former Palm Beach Gardens middle school teacher remains on the run facing charges of child pornography and enticement, but a more grim search continues closer to home: a search for all of the victims in the crime.

While both school district and federal authorities report they have been in contact with families of children identified in the investigation, they continue to seek others.

Thursday afternoon, the Palm Beach County School District said it will be posting additional counselors at Howell L. Watkins Middle School, where Corey Perry, 33, taught science and computing. The counselors are there for those who may have been a victim of abuse.

Perry taught in the district since 2005, beginning as a fifth grade teacher at Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary and then moving to Howell L. Watkins in 2010.

In its announcement, the district reached out to high schoolers and graduates as well:

High school students who feel they may have been victims of the acts allegedly committed by Corey Perry during his time at H.L. Watkins Middle are urged to immediately contact the FBI at (754) 703-2000 and contact their school counselors for support.

Those students who have already graduated from the School District of Palm Beach County should notify the FBI at (754) 703-2000.

Students who want to discuss their concerns about the allegations against Mr. Perry should contact their school counselors for support.
