Wonder what instrument this dude will be playing in prison...
How do these freaks keep winding up at schools? A former middle school band director has pleaded guilty in Austin to producing and distributing child porn. Robert Ramos Jr., who's been in custody since his January 2012 arrest, is facing a maximum penalty of 50 years.

The 33-year-old former assistant band director at a Pflugerville middle school "admitted that he obtained sexually explicit images of a 13-year-old girl by communicating with her on Facebook," according to the Police News.

Ramos "used Facebook accounts that falsely portrayed him as a teenage girl," according to the story. He "also admitted to distributing those images to Timothy Bek, a teacher in New York who was also contacting girls for the purpose of obtaining sexually explicit images."

But of course that wasn't fucked up enough for Ramos, who admitted "that he viewed via Internet webcam and saved to his computer a video of a five-year-old girl being sexually abused by Jennifer Mahoney, of New Jersey."

Bek was previously sentenced to 30 years for his part; Mahoney pleaded guilty to one count of sexual exploitation of a child and is awaiting sentencing.

According to the Police News, the case was part of the U.S. Department of Justice's Project Safe Childhood, "a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse."
