But she did report matters when a second similar letter arrived at her office, three months later.

The letter claimed to be from a mysterious “Weardale woman”, but Miss Bottomley said a DNA lift from the envelope led officers to the home of 56-year-old Alan James Willey – whose sexual prowess was referred to by the supposed female author.

The statement also said, “As always, the priority for Bemidji Area Schools is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all students.

All complaints regarding school district employees are taken seriously and will work with all appropriate agencies to ensure that a comprehensive investigation is completed.” Bjerknes became the assistant principal at the middle school in 2014 after being promoted from dean of students.

Investigators informed Bjerknes that they had viewed the the photos and text on Snapchat and Bjerknes admitted he knew the victims were younger than 15.

He stated that he created the account and all of the Snapchat contact had been done through his “Brett Larson” Snapchat account.

The sheriff’s department sought and executed a search warrant on the same day, and Bjerknes admitted he created the Facebook account.

He also admitted that he accessed the account on multiple devices.

Willey appealed against that sentence at Durham Crown Court, claiming that the custodial element was excessive.

His barrister, Amrit Jandoo, said it was never his client’s intention to cause alarm or upset, but he accepted that appears to have been the effect.

Willey, of Lyndgate Square, Wolsingham, was subsequently given an 18-week prison sentence, suspended for a year, during which he was ordered to undergo 15 Probation Service supervised rehabilitation activity days.

He was also ordered to pay the £620 costs of the hearing, a £115 statutory surcharge, and was made subject of a two-year restraining order, forbidding him from contacting the woman.

“But, we do find that it can be dealt with by way of a high level community order, although we don’t criticise the magistrates’ original decision.” The custodial element of the sentence was removed and the community order was set at one year, with all other aspects of the original sentence left as passed by the magistrates.
