Okla. Ex-Teacher Seeks Leniency In Sentencing

Posted: Updated:

SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) - A former Oklahoma schoolteacher who pleaded no contest to child pornography charges is asking a judge for leniency as he considers her sentence.

Kimberly Crain is set for sentencing March 22 in Pottawatomie County. She was accused of taking inappropriate photos of young girls and sending them to Gary Doby, a retired professor of early childhood development.

Doby pleaded guilty to pornography and exploitation charges and received a life sentence.

In a handwritten letter, she asked Judge John Canavan to sentence her to probation - even though the charges carry a minimum 25-year prison term.

Crain said a hormonal imbalance caused by menopause and depression contributed to her actions.

An attorney representing the children's families called Crain's letter "offensive" and said Crain should receive prison time.
