Stoneham High School Staffer Accused Of Soliciting 14-Year-Old Girl Online

FRAMINGHAM (CBS) – The Director of Student Services at Stoneham High School is facing charges over accusations that he solicited inappropriate photos from a 15-year-old girl in Maine.

Stephen Orloff, 47, of Framingham is charged with posing a child in the nude and distribution of obscene matter.

He pretended to be a 14-year-old boy in order to get the photos, according to Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone.

He was ordered held on $20,000 cash bail.

Orloff is not allowed to use the internet, must stay away from Stoneham Public Schools, he cannot have contact with children under 18, and he must surrender his passport.

A statement from Stoneham Public Schools confirmed Orloff is an employee there.

“Mr. Orloff has been employed in an administrative capacity as the Director of Student Services and had not been assigned to provide any direct services to students. The Stoneham School Department has been cooperating with authorities in this investigation, and Mr. Orloff has been placed on administrative leave and directed to refrain from any contact with the Stoneham Public Schools.”

An order to vacate marital home was also issued.

“This is another stark reminder of how the Internet can be used by strangers to contact young, vulnerable victims and place them in dangerous situations,” DA Leone said in a statement.

Orloff’s next court date is January 14 for a probable cause hearing.
