Former professor, “Uncle G.,” pleads guilty in child porn case


SHAWNEE, Okla. – A man arrested on child porn charges has pleaded guilty Wednesday. 

Former Shawnee college professor Gary Doby, also known as “Uncle G.,” has pleaded guilty to 20 counts of child sex crimes and has been sentenced to life in prison. 

Former McLoud elementary teacher, Kim Crain, on trial for allegedly taking and sharing nude photos of third grades students has pleaded “no contest.” 

She will be sentenced in March.

Prosecutors said Crain took nude and provocative photos of the students and also had them talk to Doby, who she introduced as “Uncle G.,” in Pennsylvania via web cam from her McLoud classroom.

Former students testify against teacher

Last May, District Attorney Richard Smothermon called nine of Crain’s former students  to the witness stand. 

Many of their stories were similar.

One 10-year-old girl testified that at Crain’s house last year, her clothes became wet while washing Crain’s car.

She said Crain had her change into underwear in a room Smothermon called “the changing room.”

He said Crain would secretly take nude photos of the girls while they were changing.

The girl also testified she and other girls decorated Crain’s Christmas tree in a bra and panties and were told by Crain not to tell their parents about it.

Smothermon said several times a day in her classroom, Crain would have her students talk to Doby via Skype while more photos were taken.

Another 10-year-old former student testified Doby put the web cam in his mouth and asked her to do the same.

More than one girl testified that Crain had them put their feet up on a table to have their toenails painted.

Smothermon said more pictures of them were secretly taken by Crain at that time.

Parents file suit again McLoud Public Schools

McLoud Public Schools is also facing legal trouble. 

The families of 10 alleged victims filed a civil suit against the district last March.

They claim school leaders failed to effectively safeguard the kids.

“These are things that should’ve been noticed by administrators,” attorney Joe Vorndran said. “When they weren’t, they were allowing those things to continue to happen.”

The civil lawsuit filed against the district by Vorndran states, “McLoud had a duty to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition.”

“The school turned a blind eye and did not have a presence in the classroom from an administrative standpoint,” Vorndran said.

In response to the scandal, the district has made some changes to their internet policies.

Those include hiring a new internet filtering company, drafting an online policy signed by all staff and they’ve even installed nine additional classroom windows.
