An information technology (IT) employee with the Orange County Public Schools was arrested Thursday after Apopka police officers said they identified multiple files of child pornography on his computer.

A forensic examination recovered deleted files on computers belonging to James Giles, 36.  Officials said the files depicted sexual exploitation of children.

Police say Giles admitted to downloading child pornography since 2005 and his computers were seized. Giles told police that he looks at child pornography when he gets depressed.

Giles most recently worked here at Ronald Blocker Education Leadership Center in downtown Orlando as a computer programmer.  Prior to that he worked at Wekiva High School.   Giles had been placed on "relief of duty," pending the outcome of an investigation in August. 

As of Thursday morning he was released from jail on $150 bond.   A spokesperson with the school district said Giles later resigned from his job with OCPS.
