EAST PENNSBORO -- "He's looking at pictures of little boys. It's not OK, it's not acceptable ever, ever," says Charity McCrae.

A mother outraged at what happened earlier today at East Pennsboro Middle School. CBS 21 was first to arrive at the school to alert you about the arrest of Craig Cohen, a science teacher who was taken into custody for child pornography charges.

I spoke with Charity McCrae, mother of Sunshine who was at school when the arrest took place. Charity finds out not by the school of what happens but by the schools Facebook page.

"I saw East Penesboro Middle School and I got sick in my stomach," says McCrae.

Sick to her stomach and unalarmed what had happened. Shortly after Sunshine returned home safety Charity reacts. CBS 21 received a tweet from Charity McCrae saying she wasn't notified by the school about the arrest, but instead by her own daughter.

Her daughter Sunshine was in the classroom directly across from classroom where Cohen was arrested.

"For the attorney general to be involved that tells me that my school officials new the police were coming into the school," says McCrae.

Charity wants to know why she wasnt informed by East Pennsboro School District about this arrest. So we called and emailed the district, and left with no response.

It was Facebook that informs Charity about the arrest but she says, "I'm not a fan of east Pennsboro on Facebook and I don't think I should have to be to be informed on what happens in the school," says McCrae.

When I spoke to Charity this evening around 7 p.m. she said the district had yet to notify her about this arrest.
