Stephen Budd case update: Lawyer claims ex-Rosarian teacher's car and computer illegally searched

The lawyer for a former West Palm Beach private school teacher will return to court in May to argue dozens of pieces of evidence related to child pornography charges should be dropped.

Stephan Budd was not in Palm Beach County court Tuesday when his attorney, Jason Weiss, confirmed a hearing date of May 15th.

Weiss is arguing police illegally searched the former Rosarian Academy teacher’s car and computer.

Investigators said they found 19 videos and 40 images of boys and girls under the age of 12 and girls under the age of 18 having sex with adult men.

Budd plead not guilty to 59 counts of child pornography.

Budd is also denying two counts of sexual battery, two counts of lewd or lascivious exhibition and one count of lewd or lascivious molestation, after two students told the West Palm Beach Police Department that Budd had engaged in sexual activity with them in 2006.
