    Educator caught in pornography 'sting' faces long prison term


    "A longtime Claiborne County [TN] educator today faces not only the prospect of decades in prison for a confessed plot to rape an 8-year-old, but he also might have to pay $187,000 to a woman whose childhood rapes are depicted in his stash of child pornography.

    Joseph Wayne Jennings, 54, faces sentencing before Greeneville U.S. District Court today for setting up what he believed was a tryst with the daughter of a woman with whom he had been chatting on the Internet last year. The "mother" turned out to be Investigator TE of the Knoxville Internet Crimes Against Children task force. Jennings was nabbed after he showed up at a Morristown motel with lubricants, sex toys and a Hannah Montana poster...."

    and

    "...Jennings spent 30 years as an educator, including a stint as principal of Clairfield Elementary. When he left teaching, he took a job at a Toys R Us...."

    Ugh - Hannah Montana poster as part of his child rape kit.

    Too bad he couldn't get life in prison.
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    I hope any former victims (and you know there MUST be some) are now brave enough to come forward. Teacher, principal, toy store clerk. He placed himself around children for decades. From the second link above:

    "In court, Jennings offered no explanation for his actions."


    Shame, shame, shame.....

    Some fascinating comments here:

    http://www.topix.com/forum/city/taze...FQEV7#comments

    Lots of former students and a couple of co-workers weigh in. One student says he was a great guy but at least 10 others report that he was strange, weird, and seemed to spank only the girls. Two students say that they thought the man was gay. There's also talk about how it was known that he cheated on his wife and girlfriends and was an all around flake.

    Given these descriptions, can someone tell me how the man lasted 30 years as an educator?

    And:

    http://badbadteacher.com/joseph-wayne-jennings/

    "U.S. District Judge Ronnie Greer in sentencing Jennings to 25 years in federal prison told Jennings, “The Bureau of Prisons has determined you are a pedophile.”

    You have to wonder if he hung out near the restrooms--or even installed a camera there. Hopefully, they've carefully checked. He liked being around the little girls and enjoyed figuring out what their interests were. I don't doubt for a split second that Jennings was an absolute gem of a helper for little girls perusing the doll and "girl-focused" aisles of the store. Most likely far more engaging to the children than to their parents. A Hannah Montana poster for an 8 yr. old is right on.
