Notes:  Gordon worked as the Assistant Principal at Mount St. Michael Academy, an all-boys religious high school in the Bronx. According to reports, he was found to be in possession of child pornography, after leaving his USB drive in a school library computer on Valentine’s Day in 2011. The USB drive was found by another teacher and held sexually explicit images of underage boys.

Gordon pled guilty to 10 counts of possession of child porn in order to avoid jail time. Instead, he was required to undergo 1 year of psychiatric treatment at St. Luke’s Institute, Silver Springs, MD and probation.
