Teachers Arrested for Child Pornography

Posted on | November 4, 2013 | 78 Comments

Sunday, after reporting the arrest of a youth football coach for allegedly raping an 11-year-old cheerleader, I did a Google News search and quickly compiled a list of five other recent cases where cheerleaders were molested by coaches. My young friend Christine Rousselle objected that I was unfairly tainting an entire profession for the acts of a few bad apples. OK, then, let’s do the same thing by the same method, but using different search terms. St. Charles, Ill.:

School officials in St. Charles are moving to fire a Sycamore man arrested this week on charges of possessing and distributing child pornography.
Jerome McCauley, 45, was charged Monday after police searched his home in the 300 block of Grant Street in Sycamore. Court records show he acknowledged having between 1,000 and 1,500 images and five to 10 videos of child pornography, some showing 12-year-old girls.
St. Charles School District 303 soon will begin the dismissal process, Superintendent Don Schlomann said. McCauley is a 19-year employee with District 303, who taught seventh-graders and coached volleyball at Wredling Middle School. He was placed on leave after his arrest.

Marblehead, Mass.:

A Marblehead High School physics teacher has been placed on leave after he was charged in Rhode Island this week following an investigation into child pornography.
William Morgan, 30, of 18 Maverick St., Marblehead, was arraigned Thursday in a district court in Warwick on charges of possessing child pornography and transfer of child pornography, state police in that state announced.
The case was the result of an undercover investigation by Rhode Island state police, the United States Marshals and the Secret Service. Morgan was one of 11 men arrested.

Wilmington, Del.:

A University of Delaware elementary education student, who served as a student teacher in Middletown and Townsend, faces more than two dozen child porn charges.
Bradford Holstein, Jr. was arrested after a search of his Newark home on Thursday.
Police and members of the Child Predator Task Force confiscated four computers and several digital storage devices, on which they found multiple video files of child porn.

Marion, Ky.:

After an investigation by Kentucky State Police, a Crittenden County High School teacher is facing a number of sex offense charges including possession of child pornography.
In late August, Kentucky State Police say they received an anonymous tip regarding an inappropriate relationship between Blair Winders and a female high school student. . . .
Blair Winders, 37, of Marion was charged with the following:
• Sexual abuse 1st degree
• Use of a minor under 18 in a sexual performance
• Prohibited use of an electronic communication system to procure a minor regarding sexual activity
• Possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor (51 counts)
• Distribution of obscene matter to a minor 1st offense
• Tampering with physical evidence
Winders was booked into the Crittenden County Detention Center.

Erie, Pa.:

A suspended northwestern Pennsylvania high school teacher awaiting trial on state court charges that he molested a boy for several years has now been charged for a second time this year with producing and possessing child pornography.
The latest charges filed by federal prosecutors in Erie allege David Montgomery, 43, of Erie, enticed two boys — described in court documents as one born in 1995 and the other in 2002 — to commit sexual acts so he could make photos or videos.
The charges involving the 1995 boy stem from at least eight incidents between July 2005 and July 2010, while Montgomery made pornography featuring the other boy once in August 2010, according to court documents.
The new charges, first reported by the Erie Times-News on Wednesday, grew out of a search of Montgomery’s residence in April that occurred after a now-18-year-old man claimed that Montgomery molested him repeatedly from age 8 to 15.

Bangor, Maine:

Patrik Ian Arsenault, 27, pleaded not guilty Friday in U.S. District Court to three counts of sexual exploitation of a male minor child and one count each of transportation of child pornography, receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography.
Arsenault had been a teacher in a regional autism program Wayne Elementary School and was supposed to start at W.G. Mallett Elementary School in Farmington in the upcoming school year as a special education teacher in kindergarten through grade three, according to a previous published report. . . .
Arsenault was arrested at his home in August by Maine State Police and agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. . . .
Kennebec County District Attorney Maeghan Maloney told the Bangor Daily News in August that the incidents involving the boys allegedly occurred in Belgrade between June 15 and July 30. They are the children of someone Arsenault knows and have mental disabilities, she said.
“It’s really upsetting that he not only created the child pornography, but also distributed it on the Web,” the prosecutor said. “It hurts the victims every time it’s viewed by another person.”

Niagara Falls, N.Y.:

Deborah Lee Updegrove Tipton, 45, a former Lockport resident and a Niagara County Community College and SUNY Brockport graduate who became a teacher in Asheville, N. C.,, is appealing her child pornography sentence on the grounds that it is excessive.
Tipton was sentenced last month to 18 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to charges related to child pornography. Her appeal was filed on Oct. 2 with the United States Court of Appeals.
The original case against Tipton stemmed from charges that she filmed videos of a nude 12-year-old girl and sent them via the internet to her boyfriend, Chadwick Hamby, of Hendersonville, N. C.,the former principal of the school where Tipton worked.
According to reports, Hamby, who seemed to be drifting from his seven year, adulterous relationship with Tipton, enjoyed sexual fantasies concerning animals and children.
Tipton, desperate to keep Hamby’s interest, according to testimony by an FBI special agent, introduced a then 11-year-old child into the couple’s chat room talks, and later created pornographic videos of a girl, nude in a shower, that featured her genitals.

That’s just a sample of stories — all from the past week — found by doing a Google News search on “teacher + child + pornography,” the same way a Google News search on “coach + cheerleader + rape” found multiple articles from recent months.

My apologies if this method of aggregation may create unfair suspicion, but the world is full of freaky creepazoids nowadays, and there are certainly ample grounds for suspicion, fair or not.

    Articles like the one you linked to are valuable for putting facts in their proper context, and obviously as a Catholic conservative, I want to defend the Church and to attack the popular culture. Nevertheless, these statistics only show the ‘bottom line.’ Just once I’d like to read an article full of provocative statistics which includes the arithmetic, the peer reviews, and the identity of the estimator when it says, in the passive voice, “it is estimated….” I realize none of this is your fault, and I appreciate your taking the time to provide the link. I’m merely indulging my impatience with journalism that produces what too often seems to me like a drawer full of dull knives.

    Now that the homosexual “marriage” genie is out the bottle, our society has gone
    over the cliff!

    I don’t despair, because (and I just read this gem yesterday in a link from TOM, but I cannot find again now!) “one doesn’t give up on the goal of draining the swamp just because one is ass-deep in ‘gators!”

    Don’t forget the ironic Q for questioning. But that doesn’t make sense, because choosing to participate in homosexual behavior isn’t a choice, is it? Now I’m confused.

    I don’t think homosexuals like bisexuals very much, because it confuses the agenda and suggests sexual attraction is more fluid than they’d really want to let on. That’s why they are so respectful and loving of their ex-gay brethren.

    But, honestly, I’m a little over all of this labelling nonsense. Sexual deviancy is sexual deviancy. A quaint little term to define your aberrant behavior only tries to legitimize it.

    “Q” is also for “queer”… There’s also “A” for “asexual”, and, I presume for “autosexual” too!

    The “P” is actually there already! But they use it for “pansexual”, “polysexual”, and “polyamorous”…

    Yes they’re a little confused as to whether Q is Questioning or Queer. IMHO they’re all queer, so that hardly needs to be stated. The questioning part hints at recruitment which is just obscene.

    I’l stick with my version for now – LGBTQWTF Coalition of Deviance™.

    They have to include the “bi’s”…

    Most lesbians and a fair number of gay men have had “relationships” with the opposite gender.

    In other words, people who want to protect kids from being abused by homosexuals are “Himmlers” and people who want to empower homosexuals to rape kids are “tolerant and progressive.”
    How close to home does the subject of homosexuals abusing kids hit?
    Lastly, Hitler was a pervert and loved perverted homosexuals like you.

    Congratulations, Alessandra: you have someone exhibiting the most sincere form of flattery!

    I don’t see all homosexuals as problems; many keep their private lives private, and go to work every day, do their jobs, pay their taxes, and keep their homes and neighborhoods clean.

    But the percentage of pedophiles being caught who are expressing their pedophilia with victims of the same sex is simply too high to be dismissed as irrelevant. Somewhere, some how, there is a real linkage, but it’s far too politically incorrect to say so or research it.

    their jobs, pay their taxes, and keep their homes and neighborhoods
    Then again, that’s exactly the profile of LGBTs who sexually harass heterosexuals, who produce/consume porn, who spread STDs, and a series of other things.
    That’s exactly the profile of LGBTs who hate research into homosexuality, and who will create pink mafias in every organization they are in, including the most virulent discrimination against social conservatives.
    What you see with your own eyes of homosexuals and what goes on where you can’t see it are two very different things.

    True, and tragic. Otherwise decent people become afraid to accuse, to rock the boat, or to confront when suspicions are raised. It’s fertilizer for evil.
