    MI - Gary Kliebert, teacher/husband of principal, arrested for child porn

    Interesting how initial reports about Kliebert's arrest left out the little detail that he was not fully retired. He was sub-ing. I get so tired of school district officials denying that a person was or wasn't on school grounds. Human beings are not invisible and do the prosecutors really have to go to the trouble of subpoenaing students and staff about whether or not this man was there? For pity's sake, he sub-ed. How hard could it be to check the records? Gives parents a real high level of trust in their children's school. And the superintendent is "considering" sending out a letter to parents? Just dandy.

    Parents in a St. Clair Shores school district are concerned about child pornography charges filed against a retired educator who may have recently worked there as a substitute teacher


    "Gary Kliebert of Washington Township has been named in a federal criminal complaint alleging he possessed child pornography in the home he shares with his wife, MK, who is the acting principal of Rodgers Elementary School..."

    and

    “The school district has not alerted the parents that this man was in the classroom,” MJ [a parent] said. “My No. 1 concern is that my children are safe at school even if the school district is not concerned.” But one school official said Kliebert wasn’t teaching this past winter and if he was in the school, he was there to visit his wife...."

    and

    "...Kliebert then agreed to be interviewed by federal investigators and admitted to downloading thousands of images of child pornography from the Internet over the last seven years, court records show. He also admitted to viewing the images for between two and three hours a day..."

    and

    "....Kliebert, who retired from Utica Community Schools, told investigators that he hid the materials from his wife in a laptop computer stored in a hidden compartment under a shelving unit in the basement of their home..."

    and

    "...About two weeks before he was charged, Kliebert allegedly was working as a substitute at Rodgers. MJ said she and her husband asked their son if he had seen Kliebert after they saw a Macomb Daily story on the arrest. She said other children confirmed her son’s comments...."

    He was there. He wasn't. He was visiting. He was teaching. He was the subbie.

    Good Lord just tell the da*n truth people.

    Whatever Kliebert's doing with all his free time, he's still doing it but not for long:

    A detailed and head-imploding article about the sentencing phase of Kliebert's trial. OK, so we learn that Kliebert also sexually exploited a relative but the defense argues that he's NOT likely to "act on his impulses". WTH? What do they call the exploitation of the young girl?

    And give me a break. The guy blames his wife's lack of interest in sex for his prurient "hobby"??? I guess these guys have to blame someone. Can't accept blame as that would just be far far too uncomfortable.

    http://macombdaily.com/articles/2012...mode=fullstory

    "....In addition, authorities later found out Kliebert exploited a minor niece, from the time she was 11 until 16 during piano lessons he gave to the girl years ago. Kliebert acknowledged he may have touched the girl inappropriately during warm-up exercises, court records show. Documents also show he showed her pornographic images of young girls on the computer for her to view.

    Kliebert told officials his sexual interest in the materials centered on prepubescent girls and he felt isolated after his wife’s interest in sex declined after having children.

    Still, Kliebert is not likely to act on his impulses, according to a psychiatrist’s report in the court file. Dr. Gerald Shiener, a distinguished fellow with the American Psychiatric Association, indicated in the report that Kliebert’s pornography interests were more like a fetish than signs of pedophilia...."

    Hmmm. Seems that the school district really didn't want the facts getting out there. I feel terrible for Kliebert's family but he's the one who hurt them....not the media.

    Mich. district spikes story about teacher facing child porn charges
    Superintendent says he acted out of compassion

    June 14, 2011

    "When professional journalists at The Macomb Daily wanted to cover former Lake Shore School District substitute teacher Gary Kliebert’s arrest on child pornography charges, they ran a prominent news story about it. When the Lake Shore High School student newspaper staff wanted to cover the same story, they ended up printing a black box with only one sentence: “This article has been censored by Lake Shore administration...”
