3rd Grade Teacher Charged With Child Porn Involving Her Students

Are your kids really safe at school?

After reading this, you may think twice about your child’s safety and wellbeing while in the care of their teachers.

Kimberly Crain was a third grade teacher at McCloud Elementary School in Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma.  She got romantically involved with Gary Doby, a professor in Pennsylvania over the internet.  The relationship grew sexual and the couple began exchanging nude photos of themselves with each other along with some of their sexual fantasies.

The sexual exchange took a new turn when Doby sent Crain a photo of two young (7-9 years old) girls sitting naked on a horse.  The photo was taken from a nudist website.  Doby then persuaded Crain to get some sexual photos of the girls in her class.  He tried to get her to have a sleep over and film the girls naked, but she ended up just having several of the girls from her class come to her house one day.  Crain conveniently arranged for the girls to wash some shoe polish off her truck and getting their clothes wet in the process.  She then had the girls, one at a time, go into a spare bedroom to change out of the wet clothes and into a tank top and underpants.

Crain had placed a video camera in a box of other camera equipment and set the box next to the bed.  The video camera recorded each girl as they changed their clothes.  When the girls ate and played in their tank tops and underpants, Crain took a number of candid photos of them.  Later on their clothes were dry and the girls, one-by-one went into the bedroom to change back into their original clothes, again with the hidden video recording everything.  Then Crain took freeze frames from the video and sent those along with some of the snapshot she took of the girls eating and playing, to Doby.

This only encouraged him to pressure her to get more photos to send to him.  Crain hung large black plastic garbage bags in her school classroom so the girls could use it as a dressing room to change into t-shirts that read ‘DRUG FREE.’  Once again, she hid the video camera so that it would record all of the girls changing their clothes and once again she shared images with Doby.

Crain claims that after this incident that she destroyed the camera and memory card so she wouldn’t be able to take anymore photos.  However, she ended up inviting some of the girls to her house to help her decorate her Christmas tree.  She had bras and panties laid out on the bed and instructed each girl to change into them.  They wore them when they were decorating the tree.  The girls even created a cheer dance that they performed.  Since Crain had destroyed her video camera, she used her cell phone to video the girls.

Shortly after this event, Crain was contacted by the father of one of the girls who was asking what had taken place at her house.  Then Crain was arrested and charged with several counts of manufacturing and distributing child pornography along with ten counts of lewd molestation.  Coby was also arrested and sentenced to life in prison for his part of the crimes.

Crain plead guilty the charges.  Prior to her sentencing, she wrote a 27 page letter to the judge explaining what had happened.  She has placed the blame on weight gain, hypnosis, hormonal imbalance and menopause.  Then she asked the judge to be lenient and giver her probation.

This whole incident should be frightening to every parent of a school aged child, especially if that child is a girl.  You entrust your kids into the teachers care and protection for seven hours five days a week.  You want to believe that they are safe and secured from harm of any kind.  After Sandy Hook, many parents still worry about their children’s safety, and if that isn’t worry enough, now add to that the fear of sexual predation by their teachers.

Reading accounts like this only helps to give justification for homeschooling or private school.  Yes, the same thing could happen in a private school as every person on earth is a sinner and has evil thoughts, but the chances of the same thing happening are less likely in a private school.  The only real safe place to educate your kids is at home.  Many homeschooled kids grow up to excel in college and in business.  Think about it.  How much is your child’s life and security worth to you?
