    Parents of children at Wellesley High met with Federal Investigators, Tuesday, to discuss the arrest of Track Coach Walter Johnson, 69, on child pornography charges.

    Johnson was arrested in his Framingham home last month. Federal agents have since stated that Johnson's arrest was part of a larger investigation of a child pornography distribution network. Johnson has been confirmed to be involved in the network, but not the source. 

    Gary Lee, a parent at Wellesley High School, shared his concerns regarding Johnson's arrest. "I just want my daughter to be safe," he told reports. 

    Johnson is currently under house arrest and could not be reached for comment.
