An 18-year-old Florida student is set to return to class Wednesday after he says he was suspended when school officials learned of his pornographic online photos and videos.
Robert Marucci, a senior at Cocoa High School in Cocoa, Florida, told CNN affiliate WKMG that he picked up his X-rated gig to help his mom pay the bills.His mom, Melyssa Lieb, said when students discovered the explicit material online, her son became a target.

The children at the school found (the porn), and she didn't do anything to stop it."
