Former NC teacher pleads guilty to porn charges

Friday, April 13th, 2012

ASHEVILLE, NC (AP) — A former teacher in Asheville faces up to 70 years in prison and $750,000 in fines after pleading guilty in federal court to producing child pornography.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported that 41-year-old former Owen Middle School teacher Kevin Mark Calloway pleaded guilty Thursday to two counts of production of child porn and one count of possession of child porn as part of a plea agreement.

Calloway will remain in custody until he’s sentenced. A sentencing date hasn’t been set.

An investigator testified last month that Calloway said he exchanged sexually explicit texts and videos with students and former students for years. Court documents say he admitted to recording videos of students’ genitals as they urinated in the school bathroom.

Gov. Perdue urges voters to oppose gay marriage amendment

Friday, April 13th, 2012

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Gov. Beverly Perdue is speaking out in urging voters to defeat a proposed constitutional amendment on next month’s ballot that makes clear gay marriage and civil unions aren’t recognized by the state of North Carolina.

Perdue’s office released a video Thursday on YouTube in which the Democrat said the amendment could harm families and businesses in the state if it’s approved May 8. She argued it’s wrong to write discrimination into the constitution, no matter someone’s religious or personal beliefs about same-sex relationships.

Perdue’s office said she planned to hit on similar themes Friday at a Charlotte women’s conference.

The governor announced her opposition to the amendment in October, a month after the Legislature agreed to put it on the ballot. A governor can’t veto proposed amendments.
