Coach Charged With Giving Porn Site Code To Teens

WESTPORT, Conn. (AP) _ Westport police say a high school assistant football coach has been arrested on charges of giving a pornographic website access code to freshmen players.

Police say 40-year-old Michael Pickering of Norwalk turned himself in to Westport officers Thursday after being notified they held a warrant charging him with three counts of risk of injury to a minor.

Police say the warrant came after they interviewed several Staples High School football players and seized Pickering’s computer under a search warrant.

The district’s superintendent had notified parents Wednesday in an email about the investigation, which the school’s student newspaper had reported on its website.

Pickering was released on $50,000 bond. His attorney, James Saraceni of Norwalk, declined to comment Thursday.
