19-year-old Dominick Floyd Halverson, of Minneapolis, Minnesota, has been arrested for posting revenge porn online. Halverson is accused of posting nude pics of his ex on Snapchat after their relationship ended. He’s looking at three years behind bars and a $5,000 fine.
First off to the ladies, unless you’ve been in a relationship for years, don’t send nudes to any guy unless you’re ok with them being out on the internet forever. To guys, learn how to handle rejection like a man. If someone breaks up with you, move on. It might hurt like hell, but move on. You’ll be better off in the long run. Also don’t think you’re getting away with it by posting revenge porn on Snapchat. You may think the pictures disappear like Snapchat claims, but they don’t. That’s not even mentioning that the majority of states in the country have revenge porn laws that carry a decent amount of prison time. Is sharing nudes of your ex really worth a stretch in jail?
Conversely to what I asked in my last post, why do these teachers want to be with teenage boys? For the most part, they’re gawky and awkward and they almost always brag to a friend, or the whole school. Not to mention it’s technically a form of rape that could negatively affect these kids mentally and socially for the rest of their lives.
And all the bros who say “I wish I had a teacher like that when I was in school” need to grow the fuck up.
You know, it’s gotten to the point every time I see a story about a teacher sending out nude pics on Snapchat, I almost automatically assume it’s a female teacher ‘seducing’ a younger male student. Imagine my surprise when I clicked on the link to the news article to find this…
Gregory Smith is a substitute teacher who worked at the Scioto County, Ohio, schools. He’s accused of allegedly sending a nude Snapchat of himself to a female student and trying to get the girl to come to his home for sex.
What 67-year-old man thinks that a teenage girl is going to want to have sex with them? Unless you’re filthy rich or Taylor Swift’s grandfather, they’re not.
Also, my usual advice to parents applies here as well. Check your kids’ devices to know what apps they’re using and who their friends are on these apps. Be their parent, not their buddy. In this digital age there comes a time when you have to stop being the ‘cool’ parent and be a real parent.
29-year-old David Andrew Borghesani of Northampton, Pennsylvania, was a teacher at a nearby high school. He resigned from his position back in February after it came to light that he allegedly sent pictures of his junk to three separate students over Snapchat. He also allegedly exchanged explicit pictures with one of the students so you can add child porn charges to that as well.
If someone were to ask me what was the most popular social app among teens, I would have to say Snapchat since it’s the one creepy teachers use most to prey on students.
22-year-old Thomas Evans Conway of St. Paul, Minnesota, was recently arrested under Minnesota’s revenge porn law. Conway is accused of allegedly posting explicit pictures of his ex on Reddit while linking back to his ex’s Snapchat account. The victim was clearly identifiable in the pictures according to reports. The victim found the pictures posted online after she received an abundance of friend requests on Snapchat. I can only imagine how those requests must have read. “Hey bb wanna trade noods?” Knowing Reddit, that probably would have been the most polite request.
While technically this is a Reddit revenge porn story, the Snapchat connection allows me to discuss Minnesota’s revenge porn law. Bottom line, it’s no joke. It’s a felony that could lead to three years in jail, a $5000 fine or both. I’ve seen child predators get less jail time, so think about that the next time you want to post naked pics of your ex, or anyone else for that matter, to get back at them.
While Mahla is getting what he deserves, if the charges are true, he’s being held on $200,000 bond. The last teacher I posted about who sent explicit pictures to students was held on only $20,000 bond. What’s the difference? The previous teacher is female. I realize there are differing laws in different jurisdictions, but there seems to be a large disparity in bond and sentences between male and female offenders. They both appear to be a danger to children, but we largely give female offenders a pass because we somehow think that teenage boys don’t require the same level of protection from female predators. A pervert paradox if you will.
Police believe there may be more victims.
Anyone else who may have been a victim or who knows of one should contact the Roseville Police Detective Bureau at (586) 447-4510.
We just can’t go that long without a Snapchat teacher story can we?
This time the perpetrator is said to be 27-year-old Tracy Miller, who is a teacher at a high school in Logan County, West Virginia. She is accused of allegedly sending explicit pictures of herself over Snapchat to at least five students. According to police, Miller can’t recall exactly how many of the pictures she sent to students.
Miller was charged with distribution of obscene matter to minors and was released after her husband posted her bond. I guess she’s got some ‘splainin to do. She’s also been suspended without pay by the school. The investigation is ongoing and police are looking for additional victims, and yes they are victims.
If this had been a male teacher who Snapchatted his junk to multiple female students, I would imagine the fine people of Logan County would have already gathered the pitchforks and torches. Women who prey on minor boys are just as dangerous as their male counterparts and as a society we need to get rid of this ‘I wish she could have been my teacher’ mentality.
36-year-old Beth Rae Harris of Chicago got into a fight with her 23-year-old friend over a man at a club. They supposedly made up, but according to police Harris had other ideas. Harris is said to have gone out with her ‘friend’ and the friend drank heavily and crashed at Harris’ apartment. While the friend was unconscious, Harris allegedly had one or more men rape the unconscious woman out of revenge. The victim wasn’t even aware of what happened until she saw the rape being shown on her own Snapchat account. Harris was allegedly berating the victim while the woman was being raped. Witnesses were able to identify Harris through the video. The man, or men, involved in the rape have yet to be charged and the investigation is ongoing.
Is this how far we’ve fallen as a society when we’re orchestrating elaborate rape revenge plans like this over a man at a club? I’d hate to see what Harris would have done if her friend had done something more serious like not paying for her drinks or something. That’s not even mentioning the man, or men, who supposedly willingly took place in the rape of an unconscious woman. Then to further humiliate the victim, have the rape broadcast over her own Snapchat account. Who thinks of things like this?
Harris has been charged with non-consensual dissemination of sexual image and is being held on $150,000 bond. If she’s convicted, there should be a Snapchat account set up that just livestreams her prison cell 24 hours a day.
