A former Episcopal Academy teacher faces child sex abuse charges.

Officials say child pornography was found on the home computer of 65-year-old Richard Perkins Smith of Media.

He is in custody in Massachusetts, awaiting trial on child sex abuse charges.

On Tuesday night, Chris Denny, a former roommate of Smith's, says he's shocked to hear the allegations

"I like everything that he did for me, to help me at finding a job and everything, but I'm disgusted by what he did," Denny said.

Smith worked at Episcopal's Devon campus from 1970 until 1998.
