Substitute teacher in Long Beach, L.A. accused of sex abuse

A substitute teacher was accused of sexually abusing a student and possessing child porn — and detectives are asking other potential victims to come forward, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

Carson resident David Vernon Prince Jr., 28, was arrested Saturday and charged with contact with a minor for sexual offense, distribution of child pornography and possession of child pornography.

Detectives said they had a single minor victim but that they believe there are additional victims in the case. Police declined to say the age of the victim but confirmed she was a student at a school where Price worked.

“Prince is believed to target minor age females,” the LAPD said in a press release.

Prince worked as a substitute and assistant football coach at schools in the Los Angeles and Long Beach areas, though police did not identify the schools.

Authorities asked anyone with additional information to reach out to the LAPD’s Juvenile Division’s Internet Crimes Against Children Unit, at (562) 624-4027.
