Army recruiter pleads not guilty to child porn

A staff sergeant Army recruiter who worked at Palm Beach and Martin County High Schools pleaded not guilty to child pornography charges in federal court Thursday morning. 

Danilo Fernandez II entered a plea of not guilty and demanded a jury trial to charges of attempted child pornography, receipt of child pornography and enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity in a West Palm Beach courtroom.

The FBI arrested Fernandez on accusations by a female student who said Fernandez exchanged messages through phone messages and Snapchat, according to a criminal complaint. The victim also claimed Fernandez had sexual contact with her against her wishes when she was 17-years-old.

Fernandez worked out of William T. Dwyer High School and Martin County High School. 

A second student came forward to investigators after Fernandez was arrested that she was also a victim of him, according to a Martin County detective.
