NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) — A teacher has been arrested for allegedly making more than 50 videos of girls changing clothes inside a closet at a Nashville, Tennessee elementary school.
Police arrested Jarrett Jones, 30, on Monday after the video and hundreds of images of young girls were found on a hard drive at his Antioch home.
According to an affidavit, Jones created more than 50 videos on a hard drive that were made inside a closet of the music room at Napier Elementary School. Jones was the music teacher at the school from 2011-2015 before becoming an assistant director of band at Antioch High School.
During an interview with police, Jones admitted to recording around 20 students while at Napier Elementary and having those videos on a hard drive at his home.
When police examined the hard drive, they found more than 50 videos in a folder titled “Napier.” Police said each video appeared to be titled the first name of the student in the video and appeared to have been taken in the closet at Napier Elementary.
Police also found more than 1,000 sexually explicit images of minors that appeared to have been downloaded from an external source unrelated to the school.
Jones is charged with two counts of especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor for making the videos and three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, over 100 items, for the images found. He is being held on a $100,000 bond.
