Ex-Broward County Teacher Pleads Guilty to Child Porn Charge

A former Broward County teacher has pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography, authorities said Friday.

Gregg Donshik, 47, pled guilty to one count of possession of child pornography and is facing up to 20 years in prison at sentencing, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida said in a news release.

Donshik, of Hollywood, was charged after Homeland Security Investigations’ Miami office received information from Interpol regarding internet users in the U.S. who had created accounts and purchased child pornography on the dark web, the release said.

When authorities executed a search warrant at Donshik’s home they recovered several computers and other electronic media containing images and videos of children being sexually abused, the release said.

Donshik was a teacher at the time of his arrest but had accessed and possessed the child pornography at his home, the release said.

Donshik was a theater and math teacher at Ben Gamla Preparatory Academy in Hollywood, according to his LinkedIn profile. Broward County Schools officials said Donshik also worked as a drama teacher at Cooper City High School from December 2014 to June 2015.
