Amore reportedly had images of apparent child sexual abuse material on his electronic devices. Victims seen in the photos appear to be toddlers, according to investigators.

Investigators also say there is no evidence that Amore abused any Williamson County student. However, he remains on suspension from Williamson County Schools.

Amore is charged with sexual exploitation of a minor, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
