Former Lincoln City school teacher on his way to prison for 4 to 7 years for participating in child pornography
Warning: This article is a bit “X” rated.
Former Lincoln City school teacher David Lon Humphrey is headed for prison for four to seven years after admitting to multiple counts of participating in child pornography. By possessing and viewing child pornography and further expanding its distribution, the law considers viewing such materials, especially online, as supporting the industry and thereby allowing it to grow and increase its number of victims.
Child pornography is viewed as being one of the most life-robbing acts that an adult can inflict on a child, a child who more often than not is the son or daughter of the perpetrator. And it’s done for money – a toxic combination of sexual perversion for financial gain using one’s own children who are utterly unwilling or unable to turn their parents in while suffering horrendous anxiety, fear and a deep sense of self loathing that they endure their entire lives. It’s estimated that of any given 100 victims of child pornography, only five will report their perpetrators to authorities.
Child pornography is very difficult to track down on the internet without having a porno customer’s computer to track the computer’s activity. But once that evidence is downloaded, law enforcement can follow the source of the pornography and issue search warrants.
Pornography is a very large world-wide industry. Here’s a brief overview of it found on Wikipedia:
The U.S. Department of Justice states that “At any one time there are estimated to be more than one million pornographic images of children on the Internet, with 200 new images posted daily.” They also note that a single offender arrested in the U.K. possessed 450,000 child pornography images, and that a single child pornography site received a million hits in a month. Further, that much of the trade in child pornography takes place at hidden levels of the Internet, and that it has been estimated that there are between 50,000 and 100,000 paedophiles involved in organized pornography rings around the world, and that one third of these operate from the United States.
The implications for those who are sexually addicted to any form of pornography was recently outlined in the magazine Psychology Today when it was discovered that some employees at the U.S. Pentagon were buying child pornography while at work, making them perfect targets for blackmailers seeking to compromise American security.

In short, child pronography – or any pornography – takes a terrible toll on children and adults when sexual dysfunction and addiction becomes big business.
That’s why the mere possession of child pornography is illegal.
