Middle School Teacher Charged with Possession of Child Pornography

Kevin Bremerman, 35, of Damascus Park Terrace in Damascus, was arrested and charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography.

He is a middle school teacher at Roberto Clemente Middle School in Germantown, but Montgomery County Police Department stressed that these offenses do not involve students. However, MCPD wrote in a news release, “investigators are concerned due to the nature of these offenses and Bremerman’s daily interactions with children.”

He was placed on administrative leave by Montgomery County Public Schools.

Bremerman has been employed by MCPS since 2017. He has been assigned to Clemente since July 2020 and was a teacher at Goshen Elementary School from 2017 to 2020. He also worked for Bar-T, an after school and summer camp program in Gaithersburg, and KidsCo, a before and after school program in Montgomery County, between 2000 and 2015.

Detectives from the Special Victims Investigations Division – Child Exploitation Unit began an investigation in January when the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received a tip from an instant messaging mobile app that a user of that app was possibly uploading child pornography and it was determined that the person lived in Montgomery County.

Police searched Bremerman’s residence on March 29 and found numerous videos and photographs of child pornography on his cell phone. He was arrested and taken to the Central Processing Unit where he is currently being held.

Jeffrey Brown, director at Roberto Clemente, sent a letter to his middle school community, alerting them to the teacher’s arrest, noting, “At this time, the Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD) does not believe that the pornography included any images or footage of Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) students.”

Brown also wrote, “These charges are deeply troubling and are a violation of the core values of our school and school system. This behavior does not reflect the principles of MCPS or our community and it will not be tolerated.”

Stephanie Dinga, Goshen Elementary principal, also wrote a similar letter to the families at the Gaithersburg school.
