Kansas teacher found guilty of stalking 10-year-old girl

A Kansas elementary school teacher has been found guilty of stalking a 10-year-old student and taking hundreds of videos and photos of the girl’s legs and butt.

James Loganbill, 58, was convicted on Wednesday after his victim told the court she still had nightmares and was “scared of men” in the wake of the shocking ordeal, the Kansas City Star reports.

Loganbill, who was arrested in June last year, was teaching at Meadow Lane Elementary School in Olathe, just outside Kansas City, at the time.

The girl’s friends reported to the principal that they’d seen Loganbill taking photos of the fourth-grade student.

He then admitted to police that he was “obsessed” with the girl – especially when she wore black leggings in class.

Investigators alleged Loganbill had taken 230 photos and 31 videos of the girl between August 2019 and March 2020.

The photos and videos were taken on the teacher’s phone and school-issued iPad, police said.

Loganbill resigned a day after the principal received the complaint about him.

He later retired after three decades working within the Olathe school district.   

During his trial, the victim told the court: “It makes me kind of scared of men now, just in general.”

Loganbill was found guilty of reckless stalking and will be sentenced in November.
