Investigators said they discovered lewd pictures and messages on Wright's cellphone. Wright is facing one count of sharing transmission material to minors and 33 counts of possession of child pornography.

"There were some pictures of underage girls on it, underage children in pornographic poses," said Nassau County Sheriff's Office Undersheriff George Lueders. 

Action News went by Wright's home, but no one answered the door. Lueders said there could be more victims and encourages the public to speak up.

"We're following up on all of those leads to try and find the victims involved in this," Lueders said.

The State Attorney's Office is teaming up with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the NCSO as part of the investigation.

Wright originally bonded out for the first case back in June, but allegedly made contact with the victim -- so his bond was revoked. He was behind bars Friday when he got word of the 34 new counts. Wright's arraignment for the new charges is set for Aug. 21.

The accusations against Wright are upsetting to area parents like George McLoud.

"It's pitiful. You can't trust anybody these days," McLoud said. "To have that many charges ... meaning he wasn't first off the block. He's probably been doing this a long time."
