The subject is currently employed as a custodian at IDEA Victory Public School at 11612 N. Nebraska Ave Tampa, FL 33612.
“It is a reprehensible betrayal of trust that someone employed to ensure the safety and work with children at a school would engage in such repugnant behavior,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “We will not rest until every corner of our community is free from the reach of those who seek to harm our most vulnerable.”
Mark Jordan faces the following charges:
- 22 counts of Possession of Child Pornography, 10 or More Images And Content of Images
- One count of Unlawful Use of a Two Way Communications Device, and
- One count of Tampering with Physical Evidence.
At this point in the investigation, HCSO does not have reason to believe any children at the school were victimized.
This is still an active investigation. Anyone with information on this case, or if someone believes they may have been a victim of Mark Jordan, please call HCSO at 813-247-8200.
