Charge dismissed against Freeman assistant accused of taking nude photo

Freeman High School

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. – Charges were dismissed against a former temporary instructional assistant at Freeman High School accused of taking a nude photo of a student.

Joshua Brinkley, 22, was arrested in 2013 after he allegedly recorded an undressed student at the West End high school.

During a January hearing, a judge deferred his judgment until July. That meant if Brinkley met the terms and conditions the judge set out, the charge could be dismissed. It was.

The conditions the judge set for Brinkley have not yet been released.

Brinkley worked with special needs students during his time at Freeman.
