Update: Lon Morris College's Head Golf Coach Arrested For Child Porn

The head golf coach at Lon Morris College in Jacksonville who was arrested on child pornography charges will be back in court later this week.

Barry Dean Griffin, 38, surrendered himself to marshals in Judge John Love's court yesterday. He was making an appearance on initial charges of child pornography possession and distribution of visual depictions involving the sexual exploitation of minors.

His detention hearing is slated for Thursday.

Lon Morris College says its security office has contacted federal authorities and is assisting in the investigation.

Griffin has been working as a golf coach for Lon Morris since 2005, and currently is both the head golf coach and a kinesiology instructor.
