Teacher accused of creating child porn worked with Portland Parks and Rec

OREGON CITY, OR (KPTV) -

A man who arrested Friday on charges of producing child pornography worked for the Portland Parks and Recreation department for more than 20 years.

James McGlothlin appeared in court for the first time Monday. Clackamas County deputies arrested him after they say they found sexually explicit images and videos of young children in his home.

He worked with developmentally disabled children at several Oregon City schools since 2005, and he has held seasonal positions with Portland Parks and Rec since the early 1990s.

From 1993 to 2012, McGlothlin worked as a lifeguard at Southwest Community Center and Wilson Pool, and he also was a drop-in child care staffer in 2004 at Southwest Community Center.

McGlothlin also held a position as a "Summer Aquatics Supply" delivery staff member from 2007 to July of this past year.

Oregon City School District Superintendent Larry Didway released a statement Saturday confirming McGlothlin had been suspended last week, saying in part, “we are all sickened by the details unfolding from this investigation.”

Anyone with information on potential victims is asked to call the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.
