Fort Walton Beach, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Raymond Earl Totten Jr., a 47 year old tennis and golf coach at Fort Walton Beach High School in Fort Walton Beach, Florida has been arrested and charged with 50 counts of lewd and lascivious molestation of a child under 16.
According to police, Totten began molesting a boy, who is under the age of 16, in December of 2007. It is alleged that the sexual abuse took place multiple times in various places including Totten's school office, the school library, and in Totten's vehicle.
Tuesday, investigators brought Totten to the police station for an interview. Before that interview started, police say a security monitor caught Totten trying to destroy two computer flash drives.
Officers rushed in and took the devices. Police say they found dozens of images of the victim’s private area on those flash drives.
Totten has been charged with 50 counts of lewd and lascivious molestation of a child under 16 and has been ordered without bail pending a next hearing which is scheduled for Thursday.
Totten has also been suspended from his teaching duties at the school pending the outcome of the investigation.
