Gymnastics instructor accused of possessing child pornography

A Boca Raton gymnastics instructor has been charged with possessing child pornography and detectives are concerned about his contact with children, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.

Hassan Jawad, 37, was arrested at his Deerfield Beach home about 9 a.m. Thursday after investigators received a tip that child pornography files had been shared with a computer at that address, officials said.

Detectives with the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force uncovered several videos and pictures of boys engaged in sexual acts with other boys or men. Most of the victims appear to be between the ages of 7 and 13, investigators said.

Jawad had been working for more than a year at Twister Gymnastics at 3100 N.W. Boca Raton Blvd. He also worked at the New England Academy of Gymnastics in Marlborough, Mass., from 2015 to 2017, officials said. or 954-356-4303 or Twitter @WayneRoustan
