Police: Male Teacher Gave Boy Drugs, Requested Genitalia Photos

SAN BERNARDINO (CBS/AP) — A Rialto teacher is in jail on Friday after police say he offered drugs to a male student and asked for him to provide nude photographs.

San Bernardino County sheriff’s spokeswoman Cindy Bachman says 32-year-old Michael Jacob Edmondson was arrested Wednesday afternoon at Rialto’s Frisbie Middle School.

He was booked for investigation of possession child sex photographs and giving drugs to a minor.

He’s in jail with bail set at $100,000.

Investigators tell the San Bernardino Sun the eighth-grade teacher gave narcotics to a high school student and asked the teenager to send him photos of his genitals.

The type of drugs hasn’t been released.

Rialto police Lt. Randy DeAnda says the alleged incidents occurred in the community of Highland and deputies are handling the investigation.

A search warrant was served at Edmondson’s Rancho Cucamonga home.

  • Lighten up

    sounds like a fair trade deal.

    I’m not sure this is illegal. I guess if the drugs were illegal it would be. Otherwise, who cares, as long as the high school kid was over 18, but maybe he wasn’t.

      well it says the kid is a minor, so there you go. Of course most HS kids are already sending pics of their genitalia to each-other anyway, so yes this seems like no big deal. But we do have child porn laws and although the line here is fuzzy, an adult posessing this type of pics of a minor is illegal. Not sure why just asking is illegal though. It sounds like he was not in posession of the pics, unless the kid sent them and then regretted it.

      Fred p – does the “P” stand for pedophile??

      Teacher pupil drugs genitals = WRONG!!

  • Smart Guy

    Except for the fact that it says the kid is in MIDDLE SCHOOL. But I guess you all dont have to read the article before you comment.

  • Bob Sheman

    Is there any morality or ethics left in teaching profession because every day we are getting new news about sex and violence in schools all over usa,the system needs better training .

  • Molecule

    “Smart guy” is an idiot. Where is your reading comprehension ?? The teacher works at a middle school and he gave the dope to a high school student.

  • realist58

    Teachers, preachers, scout leaders, coaches and even police officers are wanting your little kids. :(

    Watch out for these groups especially the teachers and the preachers.

    • Rational and Smart

      what a load of BS. We hear about the few bad apples when the vast majority of teachers, scout leaders, coaches and police offers are great! Priests on the other hand….YIKES!!

  • Is it 4:20 yet?

    This is all part of Nancy Reagan’s Dongs for Bongs program. Sounds like a great deal for the kid. Weed is expensive these days.

    • Dj Jazzy Jefferson Airplane

      LOL!!! Dongs for Bongs….hilarious.

  • realist58

    Umm… Why don’t you checking the Megan’s law web site Johnny, seems you are quite the racist.

    In the Hispanic culture it is very common place to molest children and rape women…. I know because I am half Mexican and I know how things go down on the Rancho with our friends from south of the border. When the barbarians get to drinking, you see it on the news daily here. The illegal immigrant criminals molest kids and rape women knowing the vast majority will not report for fear of deportation. Aiy Caramba :(

    • Tyrone

      Yo realist58 so when your Tio Raped you did he only put in half way cuz your only half Mexican?

    • julietacg

      Realist58, shame on you. this is not part of the hispanic culture. Ridiculous statements.

  • huh

    But this guy is white.

  • Dj Jazzy Jefferson Airplane

    Why is it every time I see a pic of one of these guys, they always have that creepy/pedo look in their eyes. It’s almost as if you can spot them from a mile away.

  • Worried

    This man is a MESS ! teachers should NEVER spend time with STUDENTS at their home EVER !!!! I’m sure the evidence will show his true colors. Even though most teachers are WONDERFUL and safe all parents should be aware and keep their EYES wide open to protect our children!! I live in Rialto and THANK whoever told the police about this. WE NEED MORE BRAVE CITIZENS LIKE YOU . GOD BLESS
