Shea teacher resigns after pornography charge

PAWTUCKET - George Grimes, the Shea High School teacher arrested on child pornography charges back in May, has resigned his position with the district.

Supt. Patti DiCenso said Grimes was no longer being paid during the summer months and school officials had been pursuing his firing when he stepped down. The local school district will have no more dealings with him.

"We've closed that book," she said.

Grimes was due to appear for a pre-arraignment conference on the felony child pornography charges.
