Ashbrook Teacher Sentenced for Child Porn

In January of 2019, music teacher Scott Gerweck who worked at the Ashbrook Independent School in Corvallis was arrested on multiple charges of encouraging child sexual abuse.  

Gerweck made a plea agreement with prosecutors which allowed him to plead guilty to four counts, be found not guilty to eight counts, and have four counts removed from the indictment. This placed his sentencing guidelines into the categories of Crime Severity level eight and Criminal History level H. 

Jan. 28, 2021, Gerweck was sentenced to six months of time served and placed on probation for three years. Gerweck is not allowed to be in contact with minor children, although it appears that he is allowed supervised visitation with his son. He will be off probation on Jan. 28, 2024, and will be included on the sex offender registry.
