WORCESTER – A Worcester resident and former Holyoke kindergarten teacher plead guilty on Friday in federal court in Worcester to one count of possession of child pornography.

Gregory Lisby, 40, was arrested and charged on Sept. 13, 2019, and resigned the day before from his position as a kindergarten teacher for the Holyoke Public Schools.

Police discovered an image depicting child pornography that had been uploaded to a Microsoft OneDrive account that was determined to belong to Lisby.

Roughly 180 images and 15 videos of child pornography were identified on the OneDrive.

On Sept. 11, 2019, a search was executed at Lisby’s home where a preliminary on-scene review of Lisby’s OneDrive account, on both his iPad and cellphone, was conducted. Lisby was subsequently arrested and charged with possession of child pornography.
