DelVal professor charged with child porn
By FREDA R. SAVANA
Bucks County Courier Times

An e-mail message referring to "boy bottoms" sent out to the entire staff and faculty of Delaware Valley College led security officials to arrest a 30-year tenured chemistry professor.

Joseph Stenson, 61, of Liberty Place in Doylestown, was charged Wednesday with 490 counts of possession of child pornography after a four-month investigation, said Doylestown Township Police Chief Stephen White.

The professor's computer at the college was seized in June after a security officer, who mistakenly received the e-mail, contacted police to report the alleged pornographic nature of the message.

After realizing his error, police said, Stenson e-mailed an apology to everyone who accidentally got the message.

White said "the sheer volume of what he possessed" made it the largest case of possession he has seen in his 30 years with the police department. He said it was the first he has seen at Delaware Valley College.

Prosecutors are sending the images to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to see if they can help identify the children in the photographs.

Stenson was released on $25,000 unsecured bail and restricted from returning to the school. A spokesman for the college said Stenson has been suspended with pay pending the outcome of the charges. Possession of child pornography is a third-degree felony. If convicted, he could face a maximum sentence of seven years for each count.

White said his department, in conjunction with several other law enforcement agencies, investigated the case, sending the images to the computer forensic office of the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office before Wednesday's arrest.

The police chief said Stenson showed no remorse when he was arrested.

"He was more embarrassed about sending the e-mail than he was about possessing the child pornography," White said.

A laptop and another hard drive were confiscated from Stenson's home, where he lives alone, police said.

There was no evidence that Stenson produced any of the graphic pictures at his home or the college.

"Nothing in the background is identifiable to the local area or to the school," said White. Stenson is not in any of the pictures, added the chief.

According to the college's spokesman, it's the school's "understanding and belief" that while the charges relate to materials found on Stenson's college computer, they do not show any students or individuals associated with the school. White said he agreed with that assessment.

This nasty ass crap is rampant.

Even random emails as spam allude to it... how common are cases like this? I'm guessing more common than anyone wants to admit.

Rope, tree. some assembly required.

This guy is guilty of having microscopic magnetic dots and dashes on his hard drive. If he violated his company's computer policies, then he should be dealt with by his company.

It doesn't sound like he's the actual pedophile.

The cops should follow the money and find the real culprits.

Those who participate in the defiling of our young are the worst of the worst, and should be dealt with in unspeakable ways. The damage they encourage and cause is unmeasurable. I have no sympathy for these people, and could myself deal with them and have a sammich afterwards, they are so very deserving of consequences. May he be shredded to pieces in prison, even those louts don't like his kind.

People that exploit children sexually, physically, or otherwise are the lowest forms of life on this planet.

Disgusting piece of shit, IMO.

Anyone that does shit like this should be shot. Period, end of story.

Adults looking at other consenting adults is one thing. Sick fucks that get off on kids and those that exploit kids should be terminated. The gene pool would be far better off.

I graduated from DelVal back in '98. Never had Stenson for any classes though. Talked to my ex-girlfriend who I dated back then and who graduated from there in '99. She had this guy for three classes during her time there.

These NAMBLA Fucks dont think theyre doing anything wrong!



I have interrogated a few pedophiles, and I can confirm that you are right on the money. "Oh, my God! If you had seen how she [4 year old girl] looked back over her shoulder at me - she obviously wanted it! It was plain as day!" "Well, listen, the way he [3 year old boy] ground his ass into me when he was sitting on my lap made it pretty clear what was on his mind." They sound just like somebody on here (or at the local pub) recounting a story about "scoring" way out of his league, but they are talking about TODDLERS.

They are genuinely remorseless, and are truly, truly baffled that other people think they should be killed. I can't emphasize that enough, though I know it makes no sense. They think of screwing little kids in exactly the same way you'd think about screwing a hot 25 year-old woman. Exactly the same way. It is the most astonishing thing I have ever seen, and I have seen some astonishing shit.
