An ex-con­vict who was once a con­tes­tant on “Jeop­ardy!” has been arrest­ed as an elite New York City pri­vate school inves­ti­gates him over the alleged spread of explic­it pho­tos on social media.

Win­ston Nguyen, a math teacher at the pres­ti­gious St. Ann’s School in Brook­lyn Heights, was arrest­ed last Thurs­day in front of students. 

Nguyen, who served time at Rik­ers Island for steal­ing $300,000 from an elder­ly cou­ple, was not charged but is being inves­ti­gat­ed by the Brook­lyn Dis­trict Attor­ney’s office.

The school con­firmed that Nguyen is a sus­pect in an ongo­ing inves­ti­ga­tion relat­ed to the “dis­sem­i­na­tion of inti­mate images via social media.” He has been placed on leave by the school as the probe continues.

St. Ann’s, where tuition can cost over $60,000 per year, said it con­duct­ed a back­ground check on Nguyen dur­ing the hir­ing process in 2020, just a year after he was released from Rikers. 

The school defend­ed its deci­sion, stat­ing that “a non­vi­o­lent crim­i­nal record may not pre­clude employ­ment” if a can­di­date is deemed a good fit.
