Katy High School Teacher James Stone Arrested and Charged with 10 Felony Counts of Child Pornography

Yet another week, yet another Houston area teacher has been charged with a sexual crime. This time it was James Stone, a teacher at Tompkins High School teacher in Katy, has been charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography, according to the Montgomery County Pct. 3 Constable’s Office. 

“James Stone has not been on campus since last week and will not return to the school,” said a statement to parents from Thompkins High School. “Because the incident is still being investigated, we are unable to provide additional information at this time, but please be assured the district takes these types of incidents very seriously and is fully cooperating with law enforcement.”

“The investigation stemmed from the Montgomery County Precinct 3 Internet Crimes Against Children Detective’s undercover investigation related to the possession or promotion of child pornography on the dark web,” the statement continued.

“Thousands of images of child pornography were recovered from the residence, including several images that Stone admitted to producing himself,” the statement said. “These images do include photos he admitted to taking while on school grounds and at beaches and local swimming pools around the Katy area.” 

James Stone’s wife, Dr. Melinda Stone, who is the principal at Taylor High School, released this statement shortly thereafter.
