Teacher is alleged to have secretly recorded children

Some of our Roseville readers may remember seeing news coverage in October of last year about a former teacher who was arrested at that time on allegations of possessing and producing child pornography. At the time not many details were released about this teacher's alleged illegal activity. A recent report, however, has provided coverage of some details released by the Roseville Police Department.

According to the report, the former teacher, a 62-year-old resident of Roseville, is alleged to have secretly recorded underage girls, which could include either teens or young children. The recordings are reported to have been for the teacher's own sexual gratification. No further details were available regarding the number of recordings in existence or the number of alleged victims. The suspect, who was a teacher for 32 years, is presently out on bond.

Any type of allegation of sexual conduct with a minor is sure to draw negative news coverage, but when the suspect is someone who is in a position of authority and responsibility regarding children, like a school teacher, the public scorn is sure to mount even more ferociously.

The 62-year-old Roseville resident in this case will have to deal with the implications of that public scrutiny at the same time that he attempts to craft a defense strategy. If this man is ultimately convicted of the charges, or if he negotiates a plea bargain, the possible penalties could include a prison sentence and the likelihood that he would need to be listed as a registered sex offender for the rest of his life. As such, mounting the proper defense strategy in this case, even if that means negotiating a plea deal for lesser charges, will be crucial.
