THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - On Monday, John Ferguson, an 18 year old student at Thomas County Central High School, is charged with sexual exploitation of children.
The Thomas County Sheriff's Office says that Ferguson had videos of children involved in sexual acts on his Thomas County Central High School email account.
According to the sheriff's office, the videos were detected by a system that filters through the students' school email accounts, and flagged it.
The school district was notified, as was the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
All children in the video were under the age of 12.
Ferguson has since withdrawn from TCCHS.
