SALISBURY — A former North Rowan High school teacher who pleaded guilty last year to having sex with students violated his probation when he was in possession of pornographic material, court records said.
Matthew Miles Price, 30, of China Grove, violated the terms of the sex offender control program, specifically, he was not to possess sexually stimulating or sexually oriented materials, but had a picture of himself having sex with a woman on his cell phone.
Price is also not to use, possess, distribute or exchange pornography.
Court records show he sent the picture of him and the woman having sex to someone in his phone’s contact list.
A probation officer discovered the material during a warrantless search.
The Sex Offender Control Program details special conditions an offender must abide by following conviction. There are at least 18 conditions listed that Price must adhere to.
Price, who was also a North Rowan coach, was initially charged with 40 felony counts of sexual activity with three students. He accepted a plea agreement in August 2010 and those 40 counts were consolidated to five counts.
He was sentenced to five years of supervised probation and was ordered to register as a sex offender.
Price resigned from his job shortly before he was charged in September 2009.
Documents said Price violated his probation in early July and is scheduled to appear in court next week.
