Child porn, molestation suspect set to be arraigned

CHULA VISTA (CNS) – A South Bay elementary school teacher accused of
molesting a student and possessing child pornography to get boys to expose
themselves online is scheduled to be arraigned Friday.

John Raymond Kinloch, a first-grade teacher at Wolf Canyon Elementary in
Chula Vista, was initially arrested last Friday after agents with the San
Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force served a search warrant at
his home. He was released on bail that evening.

Authorities began looking into the online activities of Kinloch based on
tips received by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, said
San Diego police sex-crimes Lt. Anastasia Smith.

The investigation allegedly showed that the 41-year-old Kinloch, while
posing as a girl on a website called “MeetMe,” had persuaded boys to disrobe
during live one-on-one webcam interactions, according to Smith.

Kinloch, a San Ysidro resident, was re-arrested Wednesday on suspicion
of 11 counts of committing lewd and lascivious acts on a child under age 14
after the alleged victim came forward, according to San Diego police.

The accusations involve sexual contact that allegedly occurred several
years ago, when Kinloch was teaching at Feaster Charter School in Chula Vista,
Smith said.

The defendant was being held in lieu of $1.15 million bail pending
arraignment.
