Thank you, Moron!

I appreciate idiots like this taking themselves out of the teaching job pool. I can only hope he didn't go to MY school. I can't believe people continue to be SO STUPID.

Police: Joliet High School Teacher Solicited Student for Sex

A man employed last semester as a student teacher at Joliet West High School has been arrested on suspicion of sending pornography and attempting to arrange a sexual encounter with a local student.

Doug A. Schreiber, 22, of the 1700 block of Glenwood Avenue in Joliet, was arrested Friday evening on a charge of indecent solicitation of a minor, a Class 2 felony.

Joliet police said Schreiber worked as a math instructor at Joliet West during the fall semester and now is employed as a math teacher at Rich East High School in Park Forest.

"On Thursday, we were contacted by a 15-year-old and her parents in reference to material she'd been sent by a former teacher," Chief Fred Hayes said.

Hayes said the Joliet West student said Schreiber sent her instant messages and pornographic images on her computer and text messages on her cell phone.

"It appears he was contacting her trying to arrange a sexual rendezvous," he said.

Police took four laptop computers from Schreiber's home when they searched it Friday. Schreiber was booked into the Will County Jail and released Saturday on a $5,000 bond. On Monday, the computers were scanned by forensic investigators.

"We strongly feel there are other possible victims," Hayes said. "The offender had a MySpace account he was using to exchange messages in attempts to lure potential victims. After adding someone as a 'friend' on the Web site, he provided them with an e-mail address and cell phone number for communication."

Rich East and Joliet West high schools were closed Monday, but police planned to interview staff on Tuesday.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective John Ross at (815) 724-3045.

Who never took a bath,
Aquired a certain measure of renoun.
And after school he sold the most amazing pictures,
In my home town."
