According to the probable cause affidavit, John Autry served as a substitute at Pryor Junior High on Thursday.

He told police  he was looking at porn on the computer throughout the day. He also admitted that watching porn while the students were there excited him.

He said after submitting attendance, he did not realize the smart board screen was on when he opened the porn. He realized the issue when the students started giggling and some left the classroom.

According to police, he said he understood he was responsible for the children’s safety. The students’ ages ranged from 12-14.

The school counselor asked Autry if he wanted to write an apology to the students. On a piece of notebook paper, police say he wrote “I am sorry for what has happened.”

Autry will appear in court for arraignment Friday afternoon.
