    OR - Logan Jack Storm, Beaverton teacher sought by Interpol

    I don't like this one bit. I was surprised that I hadn't seen this before as I keep a close eye on child porn arrests in Oregon. My baby granddaughter lives in Beaverton. I just checked the archives of the Oregonian and there was no earlier article. Heck, parents weren't even notified until the district got wind that this article was going to run, it seems. No notification even though complaints had been made about the teacher. And he was seeing a "former student" who is now a stripper? Being Oregon, 18 year olds can strip. They can't drink but they can strip. That always blows me away. So I'm assuming that a girl who was a middle school student in 2005 must have become a stripper as soon as she hit 18. One wonders what the relationship entailed throughout those interim years? I'm so pleased that the former girlfriend handed all this over to LE. I'm going to make a wild guess and say that Beaverton parents are not going to be pleased with the way this played out.

    Former Beaverton [OR] middle school teacher wanted on child porn charges on the run from Interpol


    "The police investigation into former Beaverton Middle School math teacher Logan B. Jack Storm started last summer when his girlfriend discovered pornographic images on his laptop of 8- to 11-year-old girls having sex with adult males..."

    and

    "....She further told detectives that the white Apple MacIntosh laptop computer was a laptop she'd seen Storm us both at home and at work. "She has watched him use the computer to provide a presentation to his students at school," according to the search warrant affidavit. Police obtained a search warrant for his North Portland home, and seized his laptop, and thumb drives about 1:16 a.m. on July 26.

    While investigators were checking the contents of the laptop, the 35-year-old man allegedly left Oregon, headed to Canada.

    By August 27, Storm was indicted on 30 counts of encouraging child sex-abuse in the first-degree, and he had fled the country, potentially to Ireland. On the day of his indictment, his bail was set at $2 million if located. His departure surprised officials at Beaverton School District, where he was scheduled to resume teaching that fall. Storm started teaching at Stoller Middle School September 2005 and was there until August 23, 2010..."

    and

    "...SF, a former counselor, said several staff members found Storm's contact with students inappropriate and had made their concerns known to Stoller's principal, FR. "This guy was giving us the creeps, getting way too friendly with students," SF said. Several times, SF said she found him eating alone in his classroom with a female student with the door closed. "It didn't feel right, but nobody listened to us...."

    Storm had been a subject of an unrelated child abuse complaint made to Portland police on July 10, 2007 regarding inappropriate touching. Police declined to release it. He also had been the subject of a parent's complaint to the school in 2007 regarding inappropriate behavior, but the complaint was unfounded..."

    They got him. I guess reading that Interpol is looking for you can give one pause. Now, I'd like a full investigation as to why this crime was handled the way it was by the district.

    people tried to get help at least as far back as 2007 and no one took them seriously

    I'd be willing to bet there's lots more complaints in his history that got ignored too

    Why is it ALWAYS a jealous girlfriend or a disgruntled former wife? An update:

    Child pornography trial starts for former Beaverton middle school teacher Logan Storm
    September 14, 2011

    "Logan B. Jack Storm, a former Beaverton middle-school math teacher, isn't disputing that there were several images of child pornography on his laptop. He's not disputing that a thumb drive with hundreds more photos, graphically depicting child rape and other images, was taken from his girlfriend's North Portland home where he had just moved a few weeks earlier. But Storm -- who fled the country for seven months after police seized the laptop and thumb drive -- wasn't the one who put those images there, his attorney said today...."

    and

    "...[Defense Attorney Whitney] Boise noted Storm's girlfriend called police and had been jealous, fearing Storm was having an affair with a former student-turned-stripper. He also noted another tech-savvy roommate in the house could have accessed the laptop...."

    and

    "...In a separate case, Storm faces two counts of first-degree sex abuse filed last month involving two female minors in 2007...."

    I hate to say it but if they aren't an ex girlfriend/wife and/or disgruntled they are busy turning a blind eye to what is being done to their own children by the POS perps in way to many cases. MOO

    This is a shock. Make sure you check out the defense's failed strategy. How horrid to think that he could have gotten away due to a technicality...the difficulty of proving in just which county images are downloaded onto a thumb drive.

    http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/i...e_against.html

    After Oregon child porn case against Portland man dismissed, federal agents arrest the former Beaverton teacher

    "Just hours before jurors were to begin deliberating Monday on whether a former middle-school teacher was guilty of child pornography charges, the state abruptly dismissed its case against Logan B. Jack Storm. Instead, after four days of trial, the state changed strategy and invited federal authorities to prosecute the 35-year-old Portland man. Federal agents arrived at the Multnomah County courtroom where Storm's trial had been unfolding and arrested the former Beaverton Stoller Middle School teacher...."

    and

    "..."It seemed like this was the thing that would best serve the ends of justice -- to ensure a conviction of Logan Storm for possession of these materials," said [Multnomah County senior deputy district attorney Donald] Rees, adding that Storm could face greater penalties under federal law. The state will continue to pursue criminal charges filed last month in a separate proceeding against Storm, that alleges he committed first-degree sexual abuse against two girls under the age of 14 in 2007...."

    and

    "...On the computer and thumb drive, investigators found hundreds of images of child pornography, including children being raped. The images were incorporated in slide shows that had been created between June 2009 and June 2010 and also included non-pornographic photos of Storm's students at Stoller Middle School...."

    Finally.....justice, or so to speak. Make sure you read how tough this one was for the jury.

    Guilty verdict for former Beaverton school teacher Logan Storm after five-day trial
    January 29, 2013

    "A federal jury on Tuesday found former Stoller Middle School teacher Logan Storm guilty of one count of possession of child pornography, turning aside his defense that the he was framed.

    Storm, 36, of Portland, did not comment on the unanimous verdict, which came after about three hours of deliberations in a trial that spanned five days. The former eighth grade math teacher was accused of possessing hundreds of images on his laptop and two thumb drives showing children being sexually exploited..."

    Hmmm....that didn't take long, did it? Storm disappeared before and he's gone and done it again. What a surprise.

    Logan Storm -- guilty of child porn possession -- slips off ankle bracelet, now on lam
    January 30, 2013

    "A manhunt is underway for a 36-year-old Portland man found guilty Tuesday of possessing child pornography, federal officials told The Oregonian. Logan Storm, a former Beaverton middle school teacher, removed his court-ordered monitoring bracelet and is on the lam...."

    More at link


    So let's have a look at what was said yesterday:

    "....Following the verdict, [Assistant US Attorney Gary] Sussman argued for having Storm taken into custody immediately. Sussman said he feared Storm would flee before sentencing, noting that the teacher had fled the country in July 2010 after police seized his laptop and thumb drives but before he was charged. Storm, who left without saying goodbye to his then-12-year-old son, did not return for seven months.

    But defense attorneys maintained that Storm has been out of custody for nearly a year and a half awaiting trial without incident. A federal judge granted the request for him to remain out of custody until sentencing....."

    Hmmmmm

    This man frightens me. IMO, he's been given far too many "chances".

    Fugitive Logan Storm's electronic bracelet found in Troutdale park; police searching for pickup
    January 30, 2013

    "Logan Storm's electronic monitoring bracelet was cut off and left in a Troutdale park Tuesday night, according to federal prosecutors, just hours after a jury found the former middle school teacher guilty of possessing child pornography.

    Officers with the U.S. Marshal's Office, the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies are pursuing leads in trying to track down the former Stoller Middle School math teacher. They are also urging the public to be on the lookout for Storm’s green Ford F-150 pickup truck with the Oregon license plate 726 CKA...."

    and

    "....finding Storm is a top priority. Storm was also charged in 2011 with first-degree sexual abuse involving two victims under the age of 14. The charges were dismissed to allow the federal prosecution to proceed, but could be revived...."

    I cannot believe the judge did not order him taken into custody. The argument given by the defense was ridiculous. Of course he didnt go missing earlier---he hadn't been CONVICTED yet. Jeeeze Louise.
