An administrator at Tower Hill School in Wilmington, Delaware, has been arrested on child pornography charges, the Delaware News Journal has reported. What are the details?
Authorities say that police converged on the school Tuesday morning and focused an investigation on William Ushler, director of upper school admissions, after he was reported to have in his possession child pornography images.
Tower Hill Head of School Elizabeth Speers sent a letter out to families on Wednesday night notifying them of Ushler’s arrest and subsequent firing and banning from campus.
Speers’ letter noted that none of the children in the pictures were Tower Hill students.
“While we do not anticipate findings that indicate any member of the Tower Hill community has been harmed, our thoughts and prayers are with the children whose images are depicted and who are victims of such deplorable crimes,” Speers said in the communication. “We aim to be fully transparent and plan to communicate if we are made aware of additional findings related to this matter.”
Police quickly arrested Ushler and charged him with five counts of dealing in child pornography.
Ushler has worked with the school for the past 15 years. In related news …
This isn’t the first time Tower Hill school has been rocked by sexual scandal: Former headmaster Christopher Wheeler was convicted on 25 counts of child pornography in 2015.The Delaware Supreme Court, however, later overturned Wheeler’s convictions on the basis that the search warrant was “unconstitutionally broad.” The convictions, if upheld, would have put Wheeler behind bars for 50 years.In her ruling, Supreme Court Justice Karen L. Valihura said that even though Wheeler was an “unsympathetic figure,” and noted that “sexual exploitation of children is a dreadful scourge in our society,” she had no choice in the ruling.“There is always a temptation in criminal cases to […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
