Marble Falls ISD: Child porn suspect put ‘devices’ in schools

Posted: Updated:
(KXAN) — A former Marble Falls ISD employee charged with aggravated assault of a child and possession of child pornography confessed to placing ‘devices’ at the middle and high school campuses, according to information passed on to the district from Texas Rangers. Deavon DeLancey, 31, was arrested on Thursday night and booked into the Burnet County Jail where he is being held in lieu of $1,100,000 bond.

He had been with the district for 11 years, mostly working in the IT department.

DeLancey was also a firefighter with an EMT certification for the Marble Falls Fire Area Volunteer Department. Chief Michael Phillips said DeLancey was removed from the fire department when they learned of his arrest.

Superintendent Robert O’Connor says the district was notified Thursday evening about the charges and sent an e-mail blast on Friday to parents.

In the email, Marble Falls ISD says Texas Rangers were investigating allegations that an employee had taken “inappropriate videos and/or photos of Marble Falls ISD students in District bathrooms and dressing facilities.”

An initial search of the schools did not turn up any devices, but the investigation is ongoing.

On Monday, O’Connor said several parents called with question about the images, which have been seized by the Texas Rangers. The Rangers say they will contact the parents of kids affected, but that it may take them another two or three weeks to sift through all the data.

“Truthfully, Marble Falls ISD is a great system and Marble Falls is a great community,” O’Connor told KXAN on Monday. “It’s saddening and sickening that one individual would bring negative press to the area.”

The Texas Rangers started investigating the case a few months ago after they were asked to look into it by the Cottonwood Shores Police Department.
