An English teacher who raped and molested scores of his pupils has appealed his conviction on the grounds that he only did it “for the sake of their education and character development.”


The case concerns 71-year-old English teacher Alan Neil Lamph, a US national and long term resident of Japan, who was found guilty of using his position as a private English tutor to rape two girls aged 11-12 and have a further 13 girls aged 9-16 engage in various obscene acts and nude posing, which he photographed extensively over a period of 6 years.

He received an 18 year prison sentence.

His defence appealed against the guilty verdict, saying he was innocent and only raped and photographed the girls “for the sake of their education and character development.”

Using the same arguments as in the initial trial, they asserted that the girls consented and that his only intent was educational, and hence it was all perfectly legal.

The presiding judge was having none of it, saying “his criminal intent was wicked and his criminal responsibility most grave” and that “his actions were habitual and ingenious – they had absolutely nothing to do with education.”

The judge denied the appeal and upheld the initial verdict saying “he clearly exerted a malign influence over the development of these girls, and the initial verdict was proper.”

Finding anyone who is sympathetic to him is a tall order indeed:

“I’m speechless at his excuse…”

“He’ll die in prison.”

“He’d get life in the US. What’s with our soppy courts?”

“Don’t they rape these people to death in US prisons?”

“If I were one of their parents I’d probably want to make sure he got the death penalty, one way or another.”

“Give him life!!!!”

“8 months a go, pretty light.”

    he's getting off light compared to the US though even if he only served a few years he'd never teach again and have to register as a sex offender (which means he's be harrased and have his stuff vandalized w the cops shrugging it off) and be chemically castrated for the rest of his life

    not to mention in the US prison culture there are 2 unforgivable acts Harming a kid and being a dirty cop

    Correct its not so much a dirty cop as a bad cop big difference. Dirty cops are safe inside its the bad ones, like the ones doing illegal things like putting evidence or harming others directly that are going to become a bunch of lifers bitches. But a dirty cop is nothing a dime a dozen since they are viewed as just been smart criminals who learned the system from the inside so taking bribes is not see as bad as say shooting a homeless person.

    the judge is just jealous~
    Seeing and knowing that ugly ass gaijin getting so much young kwif stirs his ancient dusty nethers that he must lay down the ~Raw~ whilst secretly masturbating to the evidence "borrowed" out of the police depot!
    2ch too, now knowing that a hairy greasy American landing so much poon while they too masturbate to 2d cartoons in worthless rage as they type out their frustration~

    You must be wrong, if being a dirty cop in the US is unforgivable they wouldn't have enough left to get all those bribes and maybe would start fighting against crime.

    Uhm, apparently they weren't that smart if they got caught. Lifers hear that they got pigs in their midst, they probably won't be too concerned with other details like whether they took bribes or whatnot.

    Umm, unfortunately any kind of raep can happen in the prison no matter how the person looks like as long as A.) He's not strong enough to cockblock the bigger guys and B.) He has a hole. Sometimes it makes me wonder if the main reason why the big guys often end up doing Seme-Uke on other prisoners especially the newcomers has something to do with sexual desperation or they just want to fuck (psychologically, physically, and of course literally) the weaker ones to show them who's boss.

    Exactly. Over here if you go to prison, there's a good chance you'll be raped.

    “He’d get life in the US. What’s with our soppy courts?”

    I'm not sure about this though.
    If he didn't get life it'd be much longer than 18 years at least.

    Prison Rape is a urban legend.
    It happens, just not nearly as much as people think, or really at all in many Prisons.

    I have heard that child molesters are afforded a very 'special' treatment in prisons... but honestly if that is true, I hope to hear that the child molesters stab a few murderers in response, because quite frankly, murderers exacting punishment on rapists really is a pot calling the kettle black scenario...

    I'm not fond of anyone doing such things, but it really is rather pathetic that an incarcerated gang member could think he has some kind of righteous justification to torture a child molester to death because he has a family on the outside, when he himself has shot and killed a dozen people in order to defend 2 blocks of a ghetto or something equally as inane.

    Why exactly am I a heartless bastard? Because I am interested in those who go through trauma no longer living as if they are defined by the experience? What word would you rather I use, triumph? Surpass? Overcome? What is your alternative, that they wallow in self-pity and rely on therapy the remainder of their lives? You do realize the entire purpose of all the coping mechanisms that exist is to eventually get over the trauma, right? If I misinterpreted what I really meant, I apologized, and tried to clarify a long time ago. But this is getting old now. You are being a mindless idiot, and looking for some kind of ego boost. If your bullshit makes you feel special, I can't stop you, but this is really getting pathetic.

    I'm not sure what you mean by 'one of those,' but if you mean that I believe a general instance of murder to outweigh and general instance of rape by an immeasurable amount, then yes. Do you know why? Because no matter the situation around the act itself, you are alive, and the ordeal is over. Whatever fears or trauma you have from the experience is, at its base, like any other fear and trauma. Humans add weight to one thing or another, but the reality is, it's in the past. That's not to denigrate the act for what it was, but it is over, no longer happening, and the only thing that haunts us from our experiences is what our minds made it mean about us as people, which is never the truth. Even physical injuries from an ordeal can be dealt with, and should permanent effects happen, those too are things that can be lived with. You are alive to experience it, grow from it, overcome it, have the potential to become a better person because of it, be consoled by friends if you need it.

    People say there are worse things than death, and that may very well be true. But if you seriously, and I mean seriously think, without the influence of modern media and movies influencing the perception of how easily life can be extinguished, you begin to realize that as long as you're alive, you can continue from any ordeal. Everyone can.

    That said, I do recognize how death is not to be feared or loathed in and of itself, but that does not mean that I don't give it the appropriate weight when compared to a situation where someone is alive and capable of growing, regardless of their hardships. The human being is not defined by a single experience, no matter how horrible.

    Uh yeah, the reason many prisoners target child molesters is because a lot of them have been molested themselves when they were young.

    Murder can sometimes be justified if done for a good reason. How do you justify rape? On the other hand, murder is obviously causes far more severe damage compared to rape.

    I agree with your other point through. Prison does not exist as a form of punishment. Inhumane treatment of inmates as a form of revenge is barbaric and pointless. Deriving self-gratification from revenge is not a healthy to say the least.

    Oh, and to add on a bit, the reason some gang activities are viewed as better is because once you get "into" something it's not easy to get out. The person was likely working as a form of self defense. The fact that many gangs keep existing even on the inside of prisons is proof just how difficult it is to get out of a gang. The only way you get out is to die.

    So to them, it is a way of life, and it is self defense because to stop would be a death sentence in itself.

    I'm not saying its right, but there is a lot of weird shit that plays into it.

    It is not merely rape, but crimes against children including rape, molestation, and murder get you ranked lowest on the prison hierarchy. Next to that is crimes against women, murder, torture, molestation, rape etc.

    Most of the people in prison for murder, obviously know they have done something wrong, but to them it was justifiable. Many of them also believe that to attack someone defenseless, like a child or a woman, is horrid and worse than what they did. If you're so "weak" that all you could do is attack women and children then you'll be everyone's bitch.

    It is not so much... revenge or righteousness. And, murderers do get their own fair share of shit. People die, are raped, beaten, tortured etc in US prisons all the time. Unless your sentence is light (less than a year), whatever you did most definitely was not worth it. If you have less than a year though, you stay in a smaller jail rather than a prison, and they control the inmates much better.

    "..he only did it “for the sake of their education and character development.”

    Oh gosh, this line alone makes my head automatically generates a voiced dialogues between an old man with thick english accent speaking a hybrid of english and Japanese to a schoolgirl;

    Girl: Kya~ Chin-Chin!!
    Teacher: No, no, no. Shigaimasu. This is a penis.
    Girl: Eh.. eto, chisu izu.. a.. pini-su....
    Teacher: Correct! Subarashi! Now suck it gently. Suck it!
