The longtime band director at the Academy for Academic Excellence (AAE) in Apple Valley has been arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography.

Ken Sockwell, 63, was arrested shortly after noon Friday by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department “specialized/homicide” unit, according to booking records. Authorities arrested Sockwell on suspicion of possessing or controlling material that “depicts a person under 18 years of age personally engaging in or simulating sexual conduct.”

Booking records list the arrest location as the Lewis Center for Educational Research, which operates AAE, a charter school that serves students in kindergarten through 12th grade. 

Sockwell was released shortly after 12:30 a.m. Sunday, according to booking records that show he paid an unspecified bail amount before being released to “self”; however, another section of the same records lists him as “ineligible” for bail.
