Omegle trolling teacher arrested on child porn charges

Eugene Ballantyne

Ex-Teacher Arrested Porno Charges Filed:

The smiling doofus up there is 29-year-old Eugene Ballantyne of Running Springs, California. Ballantyne was recently arrested on child porn charged when it was discovered that he had been allegedly trading explicit pictures with a 13-year-old girl from New Jersey. Ballantyne is said to have met the girl on the anonymous chat site Omegle.

For those of you not familiar with Omegle it is a chat site that let’s you talk with random strangers either through text or webcam. Their motto is “Talk to Strangers.” Their terms of service allows anyone as young as 13 to be on their site. The instructions and warnings on their site are kind of disturbing…

Omegle is a great way of meeting new friends. When you use Omegle, we pick another user at random and let you have a one-on-one chat with each other. Chats are completely anonymous, and you can disconnect whenever you like, although there is also nothing to stop you from revealing personal details if you choose to.

Do not behave inappropriately on Omegle, and understand that human behavior is fundamentally uncontrollable. The people you encounter on Omegle may not behave appropriately. Use Omegle at your own peril, and do not use Omegle if you are under 13, or without a parent/guardian’s permission if you are under 18. Disconnect if anyone makes you feel uncomfortable.

So as far as I can tell the chats are unmoderated and anything goes. I respect the fact that Omegle has the right to do business as they see fit as slimy as it is. However I would imagine that this site would be a goldmine for would be predators looking to talk to an underage girl just like Ballantyne allegedly did.

Reports say that Ballantyne was well aware of her age especially considering that he told the girl to not tell anyone and to delete all his texts and e-mails. Ballantyne also allegedly admitted to receiving explicit images from a 15-year-old girl and driving 180 miles to have sex with a 17-year-old girl.

Again I have to remind parents that you shouldn’t be allowing your kids to go on sites like Omegle nor should they have webcams. No 13-year-old girl should be chatting with strangers on the internet. As I’ve said many times before sites like Omegle don’t give a shit about your kids and you are the only defense between your kids and the sexual predators that lurk on the internet.

    yea theres things worse than that. my friend and i we’re 14,15 yrs, were on there a while back. and we saw this “webcam” of a guy, bit instead of his face he put his webcam to a child prn video. a real one. like this little girl no more than 7, and it was horrible i cant even explain. she was doing these things (i cant explain too horrible) it was like a childs body, how can ppl effin DO THAT TO A FKIN KID!?!?! we were just shocked. i was hoping so effin bad it was not a real kid and just fake or some adult posing as a kid but no, it was real. one hundred percent real life. and i feel so weird n angry about it. n the guy was like “i have more clips too” and started to change it, but we nexted quick. i mean i knew there were stuff like this in the world, but seeing it irl just effed me up so badly. i cant even explain how i feel. its like im feeling drained right now. just had to let it out somewhere, its the most horrible feeling. its probbly the most sickening thing i have even seen in my life.

    The site is monitored as of these past months, and other free-lance individuals are working on banning as many ‘suspicious’ IP addresses that connect as possible. Other Blacklisted IPs are not allowed on the site.

      Who is doing the monitoring? Omelge, LE, organizations or private citizens? Thanks.
