MEDIA, Pa. - October 29, 2013 (WPVI) -- A former Episcopal Academy teacher faces child sex abuse charges.
Officials say child pornography was found on the home computer of 65-year-old Richard Perkins Smith of Media.
He is in custody in Massachusetts, awaiting trial on child sex abuse charges.
On Tuesday night, Chris Denny, a former roommate of Smith's, says he's shocked to hear the allegations
