Child Pornography Charge Against Teacher Dropped

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Prosecutors have dropped a child pornography charge against a former teacher accused of exchanging sexually explicit photos with a 17-year-old male student.

However, the Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney’s Office said Tuesday that Erin Thorne, 28, still faces a charge of displaying obscene material to a minor.

Thorne, of Arnold, was a teacher at Broadneck High School in Annapolis. She resigned her job on April 8.

Thorne was charged last month of exchanging the photos with the student.
