MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) – A maintenance man at a Murfreesboro school has been charged with sexual exploitation of a minor after an investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

According to a release, TBI agents received information via a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about child pornography on a social media account.

During the course of the investigation, agents determined the social media account reportedly belonged to David Dehoff. News 2 has since learned he worked as a maintenance man at Middle Tennessee Christian School in Rutherford County.

On Tuesday, agents executed a search warrant at Dehoff’s home where the 31-year-old man was arrested after 121 images of what appeared to be child porn were discovered.

Dehoff is charged with one count of sexual exploitation of a minor and one count of aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.

He was booked into the Rutherford County jail, where he is being held on a $95,000 bond.

Middle Tennessee Christian School notified parents of Dehoff’s arrest saying, “I was assured by the TBI that the current charges do not involve any MTCS students.”

Dehoff, who worked at the school for about five months, has been terminated from his position with the school.

“As is always the case, our team stands ready to assist in anyway possible.  For now, we ask you to join us in prayer during this difficult time,” the alert to parents read.
