A former Albemarle County teacher is facing additional charges of online solicitation of a minor.

The Waynesboro Police Department arrested and charged 66-year-old John Daniel Patterson Jr. with using a communications system for the purposes of soliciting a minor for sexual acts and possession of child pornography.

Patterson was also arrested in April by the Augusta County deputies after an investigator posing as a young boy said Patterson contacted him online and arranged a meeting.

Officers arrested Patterson at his home Wednesday, July 10. He is being held without bond at Middle River Regional Jail.

Patterson was a longtime teacher at Western Albemarle High School. He taught social studies from 1972 until 2000.
