Judge OKs Separate Trials in Oklahoma Child Porn Case

Posted: Updated:

SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) - A judge in Pottawatomie County has rejected a change-of-venue request in the case of a former elementary school teacher and retired college professor facing child pornography charges.

District Court Judge John Canavan Jr. denied the request this week from former McLoud teacher Kimberly Crain of Shawnee and ex-professor Gary Doby of Bloomsburg, Pa.

Prosecutors allege that Crain took photos of girls while they changed clothes in her third-grade classroom and home, including photos of some of the girls naked, and sent the images to Doby.

Both have pleaded not guilty.

The Shawnee News-Star reports (http://is.gd/K6rTGp ) the judge granted a defense request for the pair to stand trial separately. Prosecutors had asked for a single trial so young witnesses would only have to testify once.

The trials are set for January.
