A Loma Linda man, who taught elementary school in Fontana, was taken into custody Tuesday after a jury found him guilty of possessing child pornography.
Jurors returned the guilty verdict against Clark Alexander Mahoney Jr. after about an hour of deliberations at his trial in Fontana Superior Court, according to court records. He had been out of custody on his own recognizance.
Mahoney, 45, was found guilty of one count of Penal Code 311.11, defined as possession or control of child pornography, court records state. He is being held without bail at West Valley Detention Center, in Rancho Cucamonga, and he returns to court Nov. 4 for sentencing.
A teacher at Date Elementary School in Fontana, Mahoney was arrested last year on allegations of inappropriately touching two students.
