    And you thought your local school district was in trouble.

    A former teaching assistant who was employed by Wynonna Judd to home-school her two kids has been charged in Tennessee with distribution of child pornography after investigators allegedly found more than 3,000 files on his computer featuring minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

    Scott Z. Myers, 27, also admitted in an online chatroom that he engaged in sexual activity with four boys who lived nearby, authorities told the Tennessean. When federal agents showed up at his home last Wednesday to execute a search warrant, he was observed leaving his apartment with two boys.

    Myers was employed as a teacher's aid at Freedom Intermediate School from August 2006 until this past May, according to the Franklin Special School District.

    Judd, who fired Myers immediately after his arrest last week, has extended her thanks to federal and local authorities and remarked that Myers' arrest has made the community and her family safer, per local station WTVF-TV.

    This isn't the first time Judd's life has resembled an outtake from To Catch a Predator—the Grammy winner divorced her second husband, D.R. Roach, in 2007 after he was indicted on three counts of aggravated sexual battery of a minor.

    Judd's son, Elijah, and daughter, Grace, are from her first marriage, which ended in 1998.
