    Kenneth Prince, 61, was arrested Tuesday for investigation of five counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. Earlier this month, South Ogden police were contacted by a man who claimed that he was sexually abused by Prince more than a decade ago, said South Ogden Police Chief Darin Parke. "We began an investigation and on (Sept. 19) we obtained a search warrant for Kenneth Prince's home. During that search we found sexually explicit images of minors on his computers," he said. Three computers were seized. The arrest was based on five sexually explicit photographs of five young boys, all under 18, Parke said. The boys had not been identified as of Tuesday. Police do not know who took the photographs. "We think a lot of these people are not adults," Parke said. "There may also still be juvenile victims still out there, and we would really like to talk to them." In each picture, the boys appear to be aware that a photograph was being taken, as opposed to a hidden camera, Parke said. Investigators could not tell if any of the pictures were taken in a school or Scouting setting.

    ...

    Utah court records show Prince was arrested for obscene acts in 2008 by Salt Lake police. Prince took a plea in abeyance, pleading guilty in June of 2008, and the case was dismissed in 2010.

    On Monday, a family member filed a protective order against Prince in 2nd District Court in Ogden. Police listed Prince as currently being a Uintah, Weber County, resident.

    San Francisco Chronicle: Former Boy Scout leader arrested on porn charges (Sept 25 2013)

    Detectives opened the case after a victim came forward with decades-old allegations of abuse by the suspect, South Ogden Police Chief Darin Parke said. Those allegations from a victim who was a teenage boy but not a Boy Scout were too old to prosecute, Parke said. Detectives are looking for any more recent victims. Police booked Kenneth William Prince, 61, into Weber County jail Tuesday on five counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, all related to child porn.

    Fox 13 Now: Former Ogden teacher, Boy Scout leader arrested for allegedly possessing child porn (Sept 25 2013)

    “The original incident happened in the ‘80s, I would suspect it’s been going on since then,” said South Ogden Police Department Chief Darin Parke. That tip led police to the former science teacher’s home in Uintah last week. Cops served a search warrant, and they said they seized several computers with explicit images of males ages 13 to 17. “The preliminary analysis showed 5 photos the prosecutor felt was sufficient to file charges,” Parke said.
    Parke said the victims are all different males, and it’s obvious they were aware the photos were being taken. However, it’s unclear who took them and whether the suspect downloaded them from the internet. “At this point we haven’t identified who the people are in the photos, but we are considering it child pornography,” he said.

    South Ogden resident and mother Tegan Greenfield said she had issues with Prince several years ago. “There was an incident in 2007 that I tried to bring charges against him,” she said. Greenfield said when her daughter was 13, she attended a party at an Ogden motel. Sisiline Richards said there were several junior high students at the party, and drugs and alcohol were available. Richards said Mr. Prince was there. “He was sitting in a circle,” Richards said. “They were smoking and drinking.” She said she didn’t see any signs of sexual abuse, but Ogden Police said Prince admitted being there. Police officials said they investigated him for contributing to the delinquency of a minor, but prosecutors declined to file charges in that incident.

    Standard Examiner: Ex-South Ogden teacher arrested in sexual exploitation case (Sept 25 2013)

    Detectives reported finding several sexually explicit images of minors on Prince’s computer, said South Ogden Police Chief Darin Parke. The investigation began after a victim came forward to police, he said. South Ogden detectives worked with the Weber County Attorney’s Office to serve the warrant on Prince’s home Sept. 19.
    ...
    Mark Peterson, director of public relations for the Utah State Office of Education, said Prince’s teaching license was revoked in 2009. The revocation was “for a lewdness charge and violating conditions in a stipulated agreement” with the Utah Professional Practices Advisory Commission, Peterson said. The UPPAC oversees educator licensing in the state. It was unknown if the reported victims of these latest charges are former students or Boy Scouts.

    Fox 13 Now: Former teacher accused of possessing child porn hospitalized after ingesting mercury (Sept 27 2013)

    A former South Ogden junior high teacher charged with having child pornography is in a Logan hospital after police say he drank liquid mercury, and cops said the failed suicide attempt turned into a hazmat situation. FOX 13 typically doesn’t cover suicide attempts, but the allegations against 61-year-old Kenneth Prince appear to be growing. Officials at Logan Regional Hospital won’t say what condition Prince is in, but police officials said he’s most likely quarantined from other patients after drinking a cup of mercury, which is like immediately ingesting seven pounds. Writhing in pain, Prince called 911 early Thursday morning from a Logan home ... Police officials said Prince also cut himself with a knife after leaving a suicide note.

    ...

    It all began with a man claiming Prince sexually abused him as a juvenile in the early 1980s. In the last two days, six more adult males have come forward to South Ogden police making similar allegations. Police are now investigating those claims to determine if they’ll push for additional charges.

    Standard-Examiner: Former teacher accused of possessing child porn hospitalized after swallowing mercury (Sept 28 2013)

    Logan police were called to the home Kenneth Prince, 61, was living at Thursday around 3 a.m., said Assistant Police Chief Jeff Curtis. Prince had swallowed liquid mercury in a suicide attempt, police said, and he was taken to Logan Regional Hospital. Curtis said police found a note in the home, on which Prince apologized to his family for the suicide attempt. Curtis did not know Prince’s condition as of Friday evening.

    In an emailed statement, Allen Endicott, Scout executive with Boy Scouts of America, said, “Mr. Prince has not been a registered leader with the Trapper Trails Council since 2003. As soon as we were made aware of the situation with Mr. Prince by law enforcement, immediate steps were taken to remove his ability to ever again register with the Boy Scouts of America.
