A 28-year-old substitute teacher and assistant football coach is facing charges of contact with a minor for sexual offense and possession of child pornography and authorities believe that there may additional victims.  

David Vernon Prince Jr., a resident of Carson who has worked at schools in the Los Angeles and Long Beach areas, was arrested on Aug. 12, according to a news release from the Los Angeles Police Department.  

Prince, who has since been released on $45,000 bail, was booked on charges of distribution or showing pornography to a minor, possession of child or youth pornography and contact with a minor for sexual offense.  

The 28-year-old, described as a Black male, standing 6 feet tall and weighing 228 pounds, is believed to target minor females.  

“Investigators identified one minor victim within the City of Los Angeles. It is believed that there are additional victims,” the release stated.
