An American man who worked as an Education First teacher in China has pleaded guilty to sexually exploiting a former student. Curtis J Baldwin from Springfield, Missouri, admitted to one count of the sexual exploitation of a minor and one count of receiving and distributing child pornography at the start of legal proceedings in the US earlier this month.
The 47-year-old had been working for Education First in China but left his employment on November 20, 2019, before returning home. Baldwin then attempted to blackmail a former student, telling her via WeChat he had sexually explicit video footage of her. He threatened to post the video on the internet if she didn’t send him more content of a similar kind.
The victim’s father saw the messages and contacted Education First, who referred the case to the US Department of Justice. After Baldwin’s home was searched in March, a laptop containing child pornography, including multiple videos of underage Chinese girls engaged in explicit sexual acts, was uncovered.
Baldwin will now face sentencing of a minimum of 15 years and a maximum of 50 years in federal prison without parole.
