SF resident is on administrative leave from school job

A Hayward middle school teacher who lives in San Francisco was arrested Monday on charges of possessing and distributing child pornography.

Police say a woman from an online escort service contacted authorities after receiving e-mail messages from William Foreman, 41, allegedly containing sexually explicit images of children. The woman says Foreman attempted to hire her to participate in a sexual encounter with him and a 9-year-old girl, to whom he claimed to have access through a babysitting job.

After searching Foreman’s home, and interviewing his roommates and others, San Francisco investigators determined that the 9-year-old girl in question does not exist. Police did, however, seize Foreman’s computer, which they say contained up to 50 pornographic images of children.

Police say Foreman, who teaches at Winton Middle School, is charged with felony counts of possession and distribution of child pornography. Because Foreman has no criminal record, the additional charge of sexual exploitation of a child rates a misdemeanor.

The Hayward Unified School District would not comment on the case, but Donna Becnel, assistant superintendant of human resources, confirmed that Foreman is on administrative leave. Police say Foreman is out on bail and they are now investigating whether he has held previous jobs working with youth in other parts of California.
