Trial Date To Be Set For Former Teacher, Professor
SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) — A Pottawatomie County judge is scheduled to set a trial date for a former third-grade teacher and an ex-college professor charged with sexual exploitation of a child.
A hearing is scheduled before District Judge John Canavan Jr. for former McCloud teacher Kimberly Crain of Shawnee and retired professor of early childhood development Gary Doby of Bloomsburg, Pa. Both face multiple counts of sexual exploitation and related charges.
Prosecutors allege the 49-year-old Crain took photos of as many as 14 young girls while they changed clothes in her classroom and at her home, then shared the images with 66-year-old Doby.
Prosecutors also allege the girls were videotaped naked while changing clothes.
Crain and Doby have pleaded not guilty to the charges. If convicted, they could face up to life in prison.
