Fourth Grade Teacher Sentenced To 10 Years For Enticing And Coercing A 15-Year-Old Girl During Sexually Explicit Online Chats

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A fourth grade teacher from Charlottesville, Virginia was sentenced today to ten years in prison, followed by ten years of supervised release, for enticing and coercing a 15-year-old girl to engage in sexually explicit online chats.

Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; Timothy A. Gallagher, Acting Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office; Colonel Edwin C. Roessler Jr., Fairfax County Chief of Police; Timothy J. Longo, Charlottesville Chief of Police; and Stephan M. Hudson, Prince William County Chief of Police, made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge Claude M. Hilton.

Corey Schock, 44, pleaded guilty on June 12, 2014 to online coercion and enticement of a minor.  According to court documents, Schock engaged in sexually explicit online chats with a 15-year-old female who lived in Woodbridge, Virginia using the Kik Interactive, Skype, and SnapChat programs.  In those chats, Schock sent the girl several sexually explicit pictures of himself, and he requested that she send him sexually explicit pictures.  In response, the girl sent Schock pictures and videos of herself engaging in sexually explicit behavior.  Schock and the girl also discussed meeting in person to engage in sexual activity, and both specifically referred to their respective ages during online chats.

According to court records and proceedings, Schock engaged in similar conduct over a two-year period with numerous underage girls, 18 of whom have been positively identified by the FBI to date.

This case was investigated by the FBI’s Washington Field Office and the Fairfax County, Charlottesville, and Prince William County police departments.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Matt J. Gardner is prosecuting the case.
