Prince was booked into the Weber County Jail about 5 p.m. Tuesday on suspicion of five second-degree felony counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. About an hour later he was released after posting $10,000 bail.
As of Wednesday, prosecutors had not formally filed charges against Prince in 2nd District Court.
Parke said their investigation of Prince began during the first week of this month, when a now-adult male told detectives Prince had sexually abused him while the alleged victim was a minor.
Parke declined to further discuss details of the allegations or evidence seized, citing the ongoing nature of the investigation and the potential for further purported victims surfacing.
However, the chief did say the complainant told investigators that none of the alleged abuse had occurred on school grounds or during Boy Scout activities.
Prince was employed as teacher at South Ogden Junior High School from 1979 to 2008, when he left for reasons not immediately clear. Parke said the suspect also had been a Boy Scout leader for many years in the South Ogden area.
As of Wednesday, detectives were still trying to identify the boys in the seized images. None of the pictured youths were the complainant, and it was undetermined if any of the images were taken by Prince himself or if they had been downloaded from the Internet, Parke said.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Weber County public dispatch office at 801-629-8221 and ask to speak to a South Ogden police officer.
