North Andover wrestling coach arrested for possession of child porn

Posted:

North Andover High School varsity wrestling coach David Castricone was arrested for possession of child pornography. The District Attorney's office says Castricone was caught on camera going into the girls' locker room at the school nine times.

Castricone was arrested on Monday. He posted the $500 bail after an investigation that spanned nearly a week. Police received a tip on Wednesday and searched Castricone's home on Friday.

Several electronic devices were taken from Castricone's home, which were found to contain child pornography. At his arraignment this morning, the prosecutor did not say whether there was a connection between the Castricone's visits to the locker room and the pornography found in his home.

According to court documents, Castricone told the athletic director he was taking a trip to Brazil and that he was interested in opening a thong underwear factory. The athletic director said he appeared "euphoric" while having the conversation.

Surveillance video shows Castricone going in and out of girls' locker room nine times. He claimed he was looking for the weigh-in scale.

The pornography which was confiscated included

  • 7 pages with 8 images of child pornography
  • 79 pages that included 129 images of child erotica
  • 79 pages of personal photos of females that appeared to be unaware they were being photographed
  • 335 pages of adult pornography.

The North Andover School Superintendent Chris Hottel says Castricone has resigned siting health and personal matters. Hottel released this statement to FOX 25:

"Given that the investigation is in progress it would be inappropriate for the School Department to comment on the allegations or the police investigation."

The North Andover wrestling team is competing for the state title on Wednesday.  The Assistant Coach will be leading the team.

David Castricone took part of FOX25's Zip Trip Trivia in April of 2010.  Watch that here.
