A 49-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday under anti-child pornography laws after he allegedly took nude photos of a 15-year-old girl in a hotel in Kurashiki City last November.
Kenji Yamamoto, a teacher at a public junior high school in Tsuyama City, is accused of taking photos with his cell camera of the third-year junior high school girl he met through an Internet gaming site. Police said Yamamoto pretended to be a teenage boy by sending the girl a picture of a boy's face he took from a high school graduation album. When they met, Yamamoto told the girl he was the boy's father and that his son was at the hotel.
Yamamoto was initially charged with extortion in December, after he allegedly threatened a high school girl that he would upload her name and the name of her school along with nude pictures he had her send him previously.
He was re-arrested on Tuesday under anti-child pornography laws after police found pictures of about 30 girls in his cell phone. Yamamoto told police that he started using the Internet gaming site in 2008, and had about 100 girls send nude pictures of themselves via their cell phones.© News reports
