Former DeKalb Schools Superintendent Arrested On 'Revenge Porn' Charges

A former DeKalb schools superintendent was arrested at his Elgin home today, accused of sending explicit photos of a person without consent.

Police executed an arrest warrant Thursday for former DeKalb schools superintendent Doug Moeller.

The district had placed Moeller on paid leave in the fall of 2016, shortly after a former principal sought an order of protection against him for alleged sexual harassment. He was dismissed the following April.

DeKalb police say school officials received sexual images of a school district employee from an unknown phone number last year.

Investigators say Moeller allegedly gave a former student money to buy the phone the photos came from with no name attached.

Moeller is charged with non-consensual dissemination of private sexual images. Illinois law says that class 4 felony could mean up to three years in prison.
