A former Amory High School teacher has been convicted by a federal jury after making students in his advisory group create sexual videos and pictures in exchange for money and drugs.

According to court records and evidence presented at trial, Toshemie Wilson, 48, was found guilty on eight counts of using students to produce sexually explicit material through his capacity as advisor of a student group called Technology Students of America.

Between 2005 and 2014, Wilson would “groom” students before offering them money or drugs if they participated in the videos or pictures. Of the eight unnamed witnesses that testified against him, multiple claimed Wilson had them make the material in certain places on campus such as the school bathroom. The predator also rented an office space for the sole purpose of having underage individuals create sexually explicit content there.

Several of the victims also said Wilson encouraged them to make videos or take pictures in public places such as a Walmart bathroom. They also vouched that out-of-town field trips were often used by Wilson to induce them into creating more content.

Wilson, who admitted to owning all the material before disposing of the hard drive, is also being tried on the state level. While those charges remain pending, officials are guaranteeing he spend the foreseeable future behind bars.

“Once again, hard work and perseverance by federal, state, and local investigators and prosecutors has removed from society an individual with a demonstrable sexual interest in children,” U.S. Attorney Clay Joyner said.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for Mississippi’s northern district worked with the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office and the FBI to investigate and prosecute the case.
