Former McDonald teacher guilty of having nude pictures of a minor

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

A former McDonald teacher will be required to register as a sex offender after he is sentenced for his crimes.

Police say former science teacher, Alan Stanley, pled guilty to the Illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented material.

Trumbull County Assistant Prosecutor Gabe Wildman says the 50-year-old solicited pictures from a female student when she was between the ages of 16 and 17.

The teacher had taught in McDonald for about 4 years.

Wildman said, "Here we have a teacher preying on a student; someone older preying on a minor, someone who is in a position of trust and authority. I think that's what sets this case apart. He pursued her. He was the primary aggressor in this case."

Mc Donald Police Chief Lou Ronghi said there were 1,200 texts between the two and a few images. He says the girl’s boyfriend thought something inappropriate might be going on with Stanley and he told his parents, and they told police. Ronghi said, "We won't tolerate this in McDonald. These are serious charges."

The Trumbull County Prosecutor's Office says the school board is responsible for seeking the revocation of Stanley's license to teach.

Stanley's attorney had no comment.

The McDonald resident resigned his positions of chemistry teacher and baseball coach in 2012 in the midst of a police investigation into inappropriate relationships with current and former students.

When he is sentenced, Stanley could receive up to 24 months in jail or probation. He will be required to register as a sex offender for 15 years.

Trumbull Common Pleas Judge Peter Kontos will sentence Stanley after a background check which is called a pre-sentence investigation.

The McDonald resident resigned his positions of chemistry teacher and baseball coach in 2012 in the midst of a police investigation into inappropriate relationships with current and former students.

The Ohio Department of Education permanently revoked Stanley's teaching certificate last year.
