Thirteen Counts of Child Porn Against Lagunitas School Superinendent. No Outrage From Locals, Says Board President

Lagunitas School District Superintendent Craig Benedict Lee was charged with 13 counts of possessing child pornography by the Sonoma County District Attorney's office.

According to the Marin IJ article, Lee is also charged with a misdemeanor count of battery on a cohabitant. He could face three years in prison for the first felony child pornography count and three years and eight months for each additional count, if convicted. The battery charge would amount to one year in county jail. Lee is on unpaid leave from his post.

Denise Santa Cruz-Bohman, school board president, said some parents had contacted the school to find out more information, but told the IJ:

"Nobody is outraged, but they're shocked."

All this coming from the same school district which attempted to pass an impeachment resolution against President Bush last fall. The resolution failed. Perhaps that's a message to "act locally" instead of "globally."

I think the max would be three years for the first count and 8 months for each count after that if they went for the Max. You get the one charge and each after that get 1/3 the middle sentence.

Sounds like this guy needs to at least loss his job and spend a few months in the county lockup.

Why were the cops looking in his computer in the first place ?
