Former Atlantic City schools worker faces federal child porn charges

An Atlantic County man who previously worked in the Atlantic City school district and as a child caseworker for the state is now federally charged for producing images of child sexual abuse.
Kayan Frazier, 27, of Somers Point, already was in the Atlantic County Justice Facility on child pornography possession and distribution charges when he was charged federally.
He was arrested in April after a search warrant led to sexually explicit images of children, including a juvenile boy who lived with Frazier part-time.
The minor positively identified himself in photos recovered from Frazier’s mobile phone, saying that Frazier threatened to harm the boy’s family members if he did not comply.
The boy’s mother told investigators she was unaware of the abuse.
The social networking app Tumblr sparked the investigation by sending a tip that potential child pornography had been uploaded to an account under the user name ley26ley26.
Those photos included images of the child and an adolescent male naked and in sexual contact, according to the federal complaint.
A search of Frazier’s phone and other electronic media found thousands of additional images of child pornography, along with images of the minor at his residence, the complaint states. 
At the time of his arrest, Frazier was working for the Department of Children and Families as a Family Service Specialist 2.  
He was hired in October 2017, a DCF spokeswoman previously told BreakingAC. His salary is $56,088.32.
Frazier previously was a substitute secretary for the Atlantic City School District, hired for the 2016-17 school year, according to a Board of Education agenda from June 27, 2016.
He worked at the Pennsylvania Avenue School.
Frazier was fired from the district in 2017, after it was found he had an 11-year-old student sleep over his house, Assistant Atlantic County Prosecutor David Ruffenach said during Frazier’s detention hearing in April.
Surveillance done of Frazier before his arrest showed that he had a boy who looked about 12 or 13 living with him in what Ruffenach referred to as a foster situation.
Superior Court Judge John Rauh ordered Frazier detained at that time.
The receipt and distribution of child pornography offenses each carry a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison, a maximum potential penalty of 20 years in prison, and a $250,000 fine. The production of child pornography carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in prison, a maximum potential penalty of 30 years in prison, and a $250,000 fine.
