Pr. William teacher charged with sex with girl he met on Craigslist

An elementary school teacher in Prince William County has been charged with having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl he met through Craigslist.

Police arrested 34-year-old Heber Ashbrook of Gainesville on Friday and charged him with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Ashbrook is a fourth-grade teacher at Bennett Elementary School near Manassas.

Police say Ashbrook met the girl after placing a personal ad on the Web site Craigslist.

The alleged victim is not a student at Ashbrook's school. A school system spokeswoman said an administrative investigation has been launched. Schools are on spring break this week so Ashbrook is not in the classroom.

Ashbrook did not immediately return a call to his home on Monday.

I get that the creep needs to be punished for engaging a minor. The other question is what is a 15 year old doing trolling around Craig's list in presumably the adult section?

I've seen 15-year olds who look to be over 18, and they act like it too. It's not like counting the number of rings in the stump of a tree.
