Former McDonald teacher sentenced for sexting student

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

A former McDonald teacher not go to jail, but instead spend four months on house arrest for soliciting nude pictures from a student when she was 16 and 17-years-old.

50-year-old Alan Stanely pleaded guilty earlier to two counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented material.

Stanley could have received up to 24 months in jail. But in court on Monday, he was placed on probation for two years, and ordered to register as a sex offender.

As part of his sentence, the former science teacher must also have his use of the internet monitored and is not allowed to engage in any social media.

McDonald Police Chief Lou Ronghi said there were 1,200 texts between the two, including 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.

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.

Stanley taught in McDonald for about 4 years.

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