Rich StynerSAN LEANDRO — Richard Styner is facing child porn and burglary charges after the 45-year-old San Leandro High School teacher accidentally showed a naked photo of himself to a classroom of students.

On April 16, Styner was teaching a computer class how to transfer pictures from electronic devices to a computer using his personal phone. During this demonstration, he accidentally displayed a naked picture of himself on the overhead projector, in full view of a class full of 14 to 18-year-old students.

“At first the reaction was that everybody was laughing because they thought it was a joke, but then when everybody realized that it was our teacher, Mr. Styner, that’s when everybody got quiet because they realized it was serious,” said one student who was the class when it happened.

Styner reported the incident to school officials, who placed Styner on leave. Everything may have ended there had the school not checked his school computer. A search of the computer resulted in 200 pornographic stories being found in a folder, along with some disturbing photos. School officials immediately contacted police, who opened their own investigation.

The pornographic stories found on the computer were not the garden-variety type of stories one can find in any mainstream adult magazine. For example, one story detailed a 14-year-old girl having sex with her brother, accompanied by a purportedly underage girl posing nude. To make things even more creepy, other pictures were of his female neighbor and some of her personal items.

According to court documents, Styner’s neighbor had given him a spare key for emergencies. Styner allegedly waited for the woman to go out of town to go into her home and photograph various personal items, and take some clothing; including her underwear. Other photographs found were of naked women posing with his neighbor’s face pasted on their bodies. o_O

On May 7, prosecutors charged Styner with possession of child porn and one count of residential burglary. He is scheduled to appear in court next week after authorities go through all the evidence against him.

    Your title was slightly misleading lol. I was going to bitch about the school/DA going too far on what was clearly an unfortunate accident. Then I find out that he was a perve that accidentally exposed himself to being investigated. I am disgusted in him and what he did, but also laugh at his idiocy.

  • Faith_In_Reason

    Same, but once I read the article it was like aw, man, C’MON! I obviously don’t agree with child porn (as well as the creepy-ass neighbor shit, but that’s another story) either way, but the school computer?!?! WHAT WAS GOING THROUGH HIS HEAD?! I swear when I read this shit I get the feeling that if I was a criminal, I’d be in the smartest 2% and I’m not that smart.

  • Valerie

    I agree. Being a nasty perv is one thing and never funny, but being completely idiotic in your criminal endeavors is hilarious.

    Whats up with freaky neighbor obsession? I did a google maps search of this guys house and next door to him is a dog kennel there aren’t even any people living there. Just wild packs of wild dogs and one water buffalo and one hyena.

  • Faith_In_Reason

    I assume it’s not a next door neighbor. I didn’t read the court documents but the source article just says she’s (was?) a friend of Styner’s.

  • JohnQknowitall

    File this under “INCREDIBLY STUPID TEACHER STORIES.” I don’t know where to begin. Nude picture on a phone used in a school demonstration? Sorted pictures on his work computer? Sorted stories on his work computer? Quite honesty I don’t give a fuck about written porn, but when it and pictures (which are a huge deal) infiltrate a child’s learning zone…. just get out… Pottbelly’s is hiring.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    Creepy fucker. Glad his stupid mistake exposed him for the potential predator he is.

  • TruTruTrue

    It just goes to show why in my book everyone is suspect! You , you and definitely You! ;P

    Child Porn Charges For Richard Styner After He Mistakenly Showed Nude Photo Of Self To Students – http://t.co/DwOWSLeDg2

  • techsupp0rt

    Oops!

  • Buffettgirl

    Gack! I need a freakin’ shower, NOW! Worst case of the heebie-jeebies I’ve had in a long time…

  • JohnQknowitall

    I hope he has at least a decent body, but from that pic he might have rack.

  • kcjosh

    Yeah I thought the same thing when I saw that. It is possible for accidents like that to happen.

    Example: I was at the grocery store the other day and saw my friends mother. I have known this woman since I was 6 years old and she is like a second mom to me. She asked to see some pictures of my new baby girl and when I started scrolling through the photos I mistakenly forgot about a joke dick pic I had sent to my wife. The conversation ended very quickly after that and I haven’t talked to her since.

  • link07

    Glad he made such a gross mistake and got caught. But Im wondering the relevance of that class anyway my relatives that age would school any 47 year old about transferring files, while playing pirated music.

  • Buffettgirl

    It’s just disgusting… and i don’t believe this perv accidentally showed the students that pic. That was deliberate, I don’t care what anyone else thinks. He’s way to creepy to have done that on accident!

  • JohnQknowitall

    Not to drag in politics again, but only as an example: Anthony Weiner ruined his congressional career with this kind of stupidity.

  • Buffettgirl

    True – but how far was the surname Weiner going to take him anyway? ;)

  • JohnQknowitall

    Raspberries to you!!! But a lesson to anyone reading: Weiner could easily have become in time Speaker of the House (or Minority Leader given political flows) – from there the Senate and possibly a bid for the White House… all gone because of carelessness. READERS YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

  • newstarshipsmell

    Styner allegedly waited for the woman to go out of town to go into her home and photograph various personal items, and take some clothing; including her underwear. Other photographs found were of naked women posing with his neighbor’s face pasted on their bodies. o_O

    Huh? What’s wrong with this? Sounds like a victimless “crime” to me.

  • EBenes

    I laughed out loud extremely hard at “Other photographs found were of naked women posing with his neighbor’s face pasted on their bodies o_0″ hahaha that shit is hilarious.

    Also I REALLY want to see what the neighbor looks like. For…..reasons.

  • Athena

    I had a guy do that once. Or, at least he told me he saw my face superimposed on the bodies of porn stars.

    I couldn’t decide whether or not to be flattered or disgusted, so I went with scared.

  • Texas Ranger

    I call bullshit on that dude. Men do not have the extra mental space required to superimpose faces while watching porn…on the other hand….why the fuck was he looking at their faces! Did he really understand what porn was all about? Did he tell you he liked the “Plot”?… Scared was the correct response in my opinion. Good Job!

  • http://www.myspace.com/davidschwab DavidRavenMoon

    While this guy is a perv and shouldn’t have had this crap on the school computer, how is a work of fiction child porn? There is no victim.

    This is like when cops pose as kids on the Internet and then they arrest some perv for attempted rape. Only the victim doesn’t exist.

    We have to be careful with this kind of stuff otherwise people will be arrested for imaginary crimes or for bad thoughts.

    I’m not defending the guy, but this is a slippery slope, and people need to be aware of it.

  • http://www.myspace.com/davidschwab DavidRavenMoon

    Lots of people have good imaginations. I have been with real women and imagined I was with a different one I liked better! lol Not proud of that, but I’m being honest, and I was young.

  • http://www.myspace.com/davidschwab DavidRavenMoon

    While he’s guilty of exposing himself to the class, and of going through his neighbor’s stuff, he didn’t break into her place, and the rest of the charges are trumped up. Legally there are no victims involved. It’s all imaginary, hence my other comment.

    If anyone has ever been unfortunate enough to have dealings with the police, they love to add charges that they practically make up, hoping something will stick. It’s like a big “Im going to win” game that’s extended through to the prosecutors. It often has nothing to do with justice and is more of a big ego/macho game.

    I think the photo was child porn. What they might try and get him on is obscenity charges. Most states and the Federal government still have obscenity statutes on the books, though they’re usually only used in cases where the writing deals with criminal activity. There was a woman in western PA who was tried and plead guilty for writing on-line child rape stories. She claimed that she did it as a form of therapy, as she had been abused as a child by her father. The Feds wouldn’t even cut a deal with her, and she refused to fight the charges. She said it was too painful to deal her past experiences in court. She ended up getting jail time. So much for a 1st amendment.

  • http://www.myspace.com/davidschwab DavidRavenMoon

    It doesn’t say that however. Unless that’s what “accompanied by a purportedly underage girl posing nude.” means. But it’s not clear, since that’s in the same paragraph as “For example, one story detailed a 14-year-old girl having sex with her brother” So is it a photo of an underage girl, or a story of an underage girl?

    Then it says “Other photographs found were of naked women posing with his neighbor’s face pasted on their bodies.”

  • Jose Pinones

    It is the job of the Thought Police to uncover and punish thought crime and thought-criminals. They use psychology and omnipresent surveillance (such as CCTV) to monitor, search, find and arrest members of society who could potentially challenge authority and status quo, even only by thought, hence the name Thought Police. They use terror and torture to achieve their ends.

  • Scout Kent

    Yes, it does say that. It’s quite clear: there is an incest story about an underage girl, accompanied by a nude photo of what purports to be an underage girl (purports to be: is presented that way, appears that way).

  • Scout Kent

    Residential burglary simply means entering (or staying in) a dwelling unlawfully, with the intent to commit a crime. There was no emergency and no permission to enter, so he entered unlawfully. The crime he committed was unlawful use of property, or something similar. Even if you do not steal something, you are not allowed to simply use someone else’s property without permission, especially if it harms it or harms the owner’s enjoyment, value, etc.

    The specifics of ‘harm’ vary by place, but are generally wide enough to put the hurt on douche lords who use your emergency key to enter your home without permission and photograph your private stuff.

    I, for one, think this is a good thing. Knowing my nasty ass neighbor had pictures of it would certainly harm my enjoyment in my nice underwear. I mean, I don’t own nice underwear, but if I did.

  • Scout Kent

    Residential burglary does not mean breaking in; see above for details.

  • Scout Kent

    So, if the picture is as it purports and appears, it is child porn.

  • Scout Kent

    Er, see below, not above.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Fuck, I blatantly fish for down-votes and all I get are these replies taking me dead seriously. I feel so left out these days…

  • 18th40

    Well I could down vote you if you really want, but I didn’t take you dead seriously so you’d know I didn’t mean it and then one of us would feel cheap and tawdry..(not that there’s any shortage of cheap and tawdry around here) so really, would it be worth it ?

    It’d be like a sympathy down-vote..no..I can’t do it Star.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Ah well, I guess I’ll just have to be satisfied with my lurkstalker F_U_newstarshipsmell.

  • 18th40

    I haven’t seen this person yet, how much did that cost you ? Are they cheaper than regular stalkers ?

  • newstarshipsmell

    Yeah, well, hence the lurk- prefix.

  • 18th40

    I think they have to surface before you can affix ‘stalk’ into it don’t they ? I mean I imagine there’s a whole bunch lurking right now and how would you know which one was yours ?

  • 18th40

    So are you going to tell us if that line actually worked or not ? I’m trying to take notes here.

  • http://www.myspace.com/davidschwab DavidRavenMoon

    It does not say “photo”.

    It says: “For example, one story detailed a 14-year-old girl having sex with her brother accompanied by a purportedly underage girl posing nude.”

    Was the brother accompanied, or the story accompanied? It is not clear.

    We can make the assumption that it’s a photo, but it does not say so.

    But I have to say I now see that it probity means that. It could have been written better.

  • http://www.myspace.com/davidschwab DavidRavenMoon

    Yes, assuming it’s a photo.

  • http://www.myspace.com/davidschwab DavidRavenMoon

    Yes, you would be right there.

  • Twisted1

    This may have saved the neighbors life. This guy was obviously obsessed with her and she had no clue. He could have been working up to making his fantasy a reality. I am sure she is relieved he is off the streets and praying the cops can get him with as many charges as possible to keep him off the streets.

  • newstarshipsmell

    They’re Following my Disqus account. That qualifies as stalking to me.

  • Whatevn

    When ever I hear stories of porn found on computers they shouldnt be on I always think.. How does one get off to photos in this day and age?

  • Whatevn

    Was it atleast a good picture? If not, you might have to retake one at a better angle and “accidentally” show her again, to clear things up.

  • 18th40

    Lol, yeah that would do it.

  • Pyncky

    So, how did the investigators realize it was his neighbor’s underwear? Was she really popular with the local Po-Po. “Hey Bill, does this thong pic look familiar?” “Hell, that’s Lilly-Sue’s thong. I’d recognize that any where.”

  • Snickering x Hydra

    You could try CAPS LOCK and more exclamation points!!!

    If that fails, make a sweeping generalization based on the story. Ex: This just goes to show you that all male teachers are pervs!

  • newstarshipsmell

    Well, but… that’s kind of a redundant statement, considering the fact that all males are pervs.

  • 18th40

    I’m never gonna learn anything.

  • Mary7780

    Na, once I seen that guys face I knew it was a total creep move. He looks like the type that thinks he’s still hot and maybe one of the under aged girls would have found the picture arousing. Even though they never do, lol it’s always a dumb fantasy in an old guys head.

  • edward

    Alright guys, I am actually from the area, and it isn’t too big of a deal here. In the sense that we all know Mr. Styner is a good person. the nude photo was focused on his marathon tattoos near the groin. I also know that the pictures he took of his friend stuff included running gear. I just don’t think he should be labeled as a idiotic criminal or disgusting perv. You guys don’t know him, don’t be quick to judge.
