Oregon City School District employee arrested on child porn charges

Posted: Updated:
OREGON CITY, OR (KPTV) -

A local school district employee is expected in Federal Court Monday to face child pornography charges.

Federal, state, and local officers arrested James McGlothlin Friday, February 19 on charges of producing child pornography.

While serving a search warrant at his Portland home officials seized laptops, external hard drives, cell phones, and digital cameras.

They also found sexually explicit images and videos of infants on his computers.

Investigators say he also had essays where he allegedly discussed drugging and sexually abusing young children.

McGlothlin has worked for the Oregon City School District since 2005 with a small number of developmentally disabled children.

The school district suspended him from his job on February 16.

On Saturday night Oregon City School District Superintendent, Larry Didway, released a statement saying in part: “As educators, child advocates, and parents, I know we are all sickened by the details unfolding from this investigation. It is devastating to learn that one of our employees who was entrusted with the care of some of our most vulnerable students may have victimized children.”

Didway also said “The district is committed to fully cooperating with the ongoing investigation and providing support and resources to students and staff affected by this disturbing news. The district's crisis response team will be prepared to offer support as needed when school resumes on Monday.”

Investigators are asking anyone who thinks they may be a victim to come forward.
