Details emerge in child porn case against high school athletic director

More is being learned about the child pornography allegations against a longtime athletic director at Arbor View High School.

Roger Brown, 54, was arrested Tuesday and is being held without bail. He faces one count of using or permitting a minor to produce porn.

Clark County School District Police officials say the victim is a 17-year-old male student who alerted school officials that Brown texted him asking for photographs.

"What I can say is that the requests for photographs were inappropriate in nature and could be considered requests for pornographic photos," said Captain Ken Young, CCSD Police.

Brown has been with CCSD for 28 years serving as an athletic director and PE instructor among other roles at Arbor View.

He was honored as the Athletic Director of the Year in 2014. He is currently on administrative leave. His first court appearance is scheduled for Friday.

Boom of new business surge in northwestern Las Vegas

A surge of new businesses, such as restaurants, coffee shops, and bars, recently opened up in the northwest part of the Las Vegas valley, which is good news for Centennial Hills, an area once hit hard by the recession.

Business has been better than I could've possibly imagined," said Kari Garcia, TSP Baking Company.

Business is not only booming in Centennial Hills, but it's also flourishing in the area in the northwest valley north of Decatur right off of the 215.

"It was literally a desert," Garcia said as she described the location of her new bakery.
