BOSTON – A former Southbridge Middle School teacher was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Worcester in connection with attempting to purchase live video sex shows involving Filipino children and to possessing child pornography.


Scott Peeler, 54, who previously resided in Worcester, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Timothy S. Hillman to 138 months in prison and 10 years of supervised release. In November 2016, he pleaded guilty to three counts of attempting to entice a minor to engage in unlawful sexual conduct and one count of possession of child pornography. Peeler has been in custody since his arrest in June 2015.


Between April 2013 and July 2014, Peeler used internet-based instant messaging with video streaming capabilities to communicate with individuals in the Philippines engaged in child sex trafficking and the sale of live streaming sex shows involving children. Peeler admitted to attempting on at least three occasions to arrange the purchase of live video sex shows involving children who ranged in age from four to fourteen years old.
