Former ‘Jeopardy!’ Champion Arrested At NYC School In Porn Probe: Report

Winston Nguyễn, NY teacher, con artist, former Jeopardy contestant

An ex-con and math teacher at an elite Brooklyn private school who was once a contestant on “Jeopardy!” was arrested last week as part of an investigation into sexualized images being spread across social media, sources said.

Convicted thief Winston Nguyen — who served time in Rikers for stealing $300,000 from an elderly couple — was arrested at St. Ann’s School in Brooklyn Heights last Thursday in front of a crowd of students.

Nguyen wasn’t charged, but is being investigated by the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office, sources confirmed to The Post.

He was released Saturday.

“We are awaiting a decision from the Brooklyn DAs office regarding charges against Mr Nguyen,” his lawyer, Frank Rothman, told The Post in an email.

“We are expecting some movement in the near future.”

A spokeswoman for Saint Ann’s — where high school tuition costs more than $60,000 per year — confirmed to the Daily Beast, which first reported on the story, that Winston “is a suspect in an ongoing investigation related to the dissemination of intimate images via social media.”

“Upon his arrest on Thursday he was immediately placed on leave by the school and he remains on leave,” the spokesperson noted.
