Delaware Teacher Tries to Set Up Teen Sex Online: Police
Published 58 minutes ago


A high school teacher is facing child sex charges after authorities say they caught him in an online sting.

Delaware's Department of Justice said in a statement Friday that Joshua Rutherford of Camden-Wyoming began an online chat with an undercover investigator in February, thinking he was communicating with a teenage girl. Officials say Rutherford expressed his interest in meeting for sex and also requested nude images.

Officials say Rutherford, a Smryna High School teacher, was arrested March 11 after arranging to meet the girl at a Dover park.

He was charged with sexual solicitation of a child and attempted dealing in child pornography. He's being held on $50,000 secured bail.

Authorities say additional charges are possible.

The school district superintendent did not immediately return a phone call and the school didn't have anything posted to its website by midday Friday.
