Washington Parish, La (The Weekly Vice) - Murray Duncan Jr., a 45-year-old special education teacher at Mt. Hermon Junior High School, was jailed Wednesday after he allegedly molested 6 children.
According to the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office, an investigation was launched after a parent came forward with allegations that Duncan had sexually molested their child.
Following the allegation, a search warrant was obtained by the sheriff's office which turned up child pornography on Duncan's computer. Duncan was taken into custody a short time later on child pornography charges.
Since Duncan's arrest, several more allegations of child molestation have surfaced, including one child molestation complaint that involves a relative. The victims range in age from 5-years-old to their mid-teens, according to detectives with the sheriff's office.
Four of the alleged victims told police they were touched inappropriately during two different overnight church trips in which Duncan was a volunteer.
During a police interview, Duncan reportedly admitted to possessing child pornography and admitted to engaging in sexual activity with two children.
"I have been battling these demons for a long time," Duncan reportedly told detectives.
Duncan was booked into the Washington Parish Jail on child pornography and aggravated incest charges. Additional charges are expected to be forthcoming, according to the sheriff's office.
Despite Duncan's reported confession, he remains on administrative leave.
