A Clay County school bus driver is facing 13 child pornography charges after an investigation in May found he had photographs of children performing sex acts in his possession, according to a Clay County arrest report.

Marion Keith Nichols, 56, who ran as a write-in candidate in the 2016 superintendent election in Clay County, was arrested Wednesday at his Green Cove Springs home, deputies said.

He is facing 13 felony counts related to possessing photographs of a sexual performance by a child. He was arrested and booked into the Clay County Jail.

The "Dare to Think" conference is history, but not so the bad feelings some Clay County School Board members have for district Superintendent Charlie Van Zant for booking the event.

The two-day conference, which wrapped up Tuesday, was sponsored by well-known conservative Republican William Korach, publisher of the education reform magazine The Report Card.

Last week, three members of the school board voted to file an ethics complaint against Van Zant for continuing to support the conference after the board voted to have nothing to do with it.
