State Attorney's office reviewing new allegations against Stephen Budd including child porn images

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A spokesman with the Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office says they received a new search warrant and investigators are going over the new evidence that could lead to more charges for former Rosarian Academy teacher Stephen Budd.

According to West Palm Beach Police, they found dozens of child porn images on a hard drive in Budd's car after he was arrested in April on sex charges involving two nine year old girls.

Now, new allegations are surfacing from his own daughter.

According to the search warrant from June, Budd's daughter told police her father "would do things to her friends that she knew were wrong and made her uncomfortable."

According to the search warrant, she told police while she was in high school and living with her father in Boynton Beach, her dad made one of her ninth grade friends dance for him in a Catholic School uniform inappropriately touching herself while Budd video taped it.

Budd's daughter told police she was, "sick of protecting her father and not speaking about the things she witnessed during childhood."

According to the search warrant, she told police the night her dad was arrested he told her to swap his personal laptop with his work computer.

Police later found a hard drive in Budd's car. Investigators say it had nearly sixty images of child pornography including videos.

The State Attorney's Office says they have not started looking at the pictures. They say there is no timeframe when additional charges could be filed against Budd.
