San Francisco man sentenced to 5 years in prison for sexting with teen boys while he was a teacher

SAN FRANCISCO — A former schoolteacher has been sentenced to federal prison for receiving explicit selfies from minors, crimes that were only discovered when the defendant’s significant other was investigated for similar conduct.

U.S. District Judge Susan Illston last month sentenced Charles Barrett, of San Francisco, to five years in prison and three years supervised release. Barrett’s sentencing came weeks after a different judge sentenced Marc Nunez, Barrett’s husband, to one year behind bars.

Prosecutors said in a sentencing memo that the crimes dated back to 2013 and 2014, when Barrett allegedly encouraged teen boys to send him explicit images of themselves. Authorities say he received nine images from one boy who stated he was 16, and at least one image from another 16-year-old boy. Barrett also sent the second boy explicit images of himself, prosecutors said.

At the beginning of the prosecution, in 2022, prosecutors said one of the victims told police that Barrett traveled to the Fresno area to meet and sexually abuse him. Nunez and Barrett’s crimes were discovered after police converted another child pornographer into a confidential informant and got him to reveal the identities of others he knew to be interested in child porn, according to court records. Police say they identified 70 victims between the three men.
