Fort Lauderdale, FL (February 15, 2019) – Police arrested a volunteer hockey coach from Saint Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale on multiple child pornography charges. Officers discovered dozens of lewd images in his possession. The man has been identified as 32-year-old Nicholas Gullman, of Lauderhill, who was arrested on Wednesday on 20 separate and serious charges. Gullman stopped working at the school in early 2018 but detectives believe that there might be local victims who have not yet been identified. According to officials, the investigation started back in January when an internet service provider supplied the police with information that Gullman was uploading images of 50 separate boys, between the ages of 10 and 14, posing or engaging in various sexual acts. Police also discovered pictures of boys in various stages of undress in locker rooms and those who were fully nude at the time of the pictures. At this time, Gullman is being held on $150,000 bond.
