Wharton School of Business Prof Arrested For Videotaped Sex With Children

He enjoyed travelling to places like Brazil and Thailand, surprisingly enough.

An affidavit in support of a criminal complaint filed today in federal court in Alexandria says Ward's luggage [after returning from a trip to Brazil] was flagged for a more thorough inspection for possible child pornography after a customs officer noticed Ward's "excessive" trips to Thailand. Federal agents recovered at least three DVDs, in which Ward appears to be "engaging in sexual contact" with children, the affidavit reads. A video of children as young as eight engaged in sexual activity was also allegedly found on Ward's laptop computer.

Ward's resume says he has been a visiting professor at Chulalongkorn University in Thailand. Federal officials believe Thailand to be a well-known destination for so-called "sex tourists" who travel there to exploit minors. Wharton's website also lists pro bono consulting work in Brazil as one of Ward's current projects.

According to published reports, in 1999 Ward was fined $2,500 and sentenced to five years probation on charges of attempting to promote prostitution and corrupt minors. [He pled no contest.]


Many of his published works deal with the effects of television advertising and marketing on children and adolescents. According to his biography,


Ward's biography also states that he was chairman of a foundation that served disadvantaged children with learning disabilities.

The working with children thing seems to be their preferred cover. Makes sense, I guess.

I know I'm going to get ripped for saying this, because there are, I'm sure, many men who just like working with children. But I don't know. Anytime I hear about a man who wants to spend a lot of time with children, my suspicions are raised.

Men don't like other people's children, unless they really like them.

Hell, they're not even that keen on their own children.

You give a guy truth serum and ask him if he'd rather have a child he can nuture and teach to become a good human being, or if he'd rather have a really cool dog that watches, and has a rudimentary understanding of, football, and, well, look.

There's no guy in the world who wouldn't rather be watching a Patriots-Steelers with his dog Bruiser than cleaning up babyspew.

This is why God made offensive schemes and Cover-2 defenses utterly baffling to dogs. Were it not so, the human race would have all but died out already.

Thanks again to Stephanie, who's still taking members for that college football pool.
