A former teacher with Charlottesville City Schools and local coordinator with a high school foreign exchange program has been arrested on sex charges.
Albemarle County Police have arrested 47-year-old Charles Farrell Long, Jr. on two counts of possession of child pornography and two counts of production of child pornography.
Police received a complaint regarding sexual abuse last December. The investigation resulted in Long's arrest.
Long is established in the Charlottesville community having formerly served as an Albemarle County school teacher, a Duty Chief at CARS, and as an officer with the Albemarle County Police Department. Sgt. Darrell Byers says Long worked for the department for two years in the 1990s. Long is an agent and president of the Group Underwriters Agency, an independent insurance agency based in Charlottesville.
According to a social networking site, Long was seeking host families in Albemarle, Fluvanna and Greene counties and the City of Charlottesville. In fact, Long was recognized in Scotland earlier this year as a top local coordinator for the program in the United States.
Long was a teacher in Charlottesville schools from 1987 to 1992.
Long is scheduled to appear in Albemarle Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court on Monday, April 30 for a preliminary hearing.
