Ex-Oregon City teaching aide gets 28 years for child porn

April 16, 2018

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A federal judge has sentenced a former Oregon City teaching aide to 28 years in prison for producing child pornography that involved an infant and a very young child.

The sentence given to James McGlothlin on Monday will run at the same time as an 18-year sentence imposed on him last month in Clackamas County. In that case, he pleaded guilty to sexually abusing three students with mental disabilities while working as their swim instructor.

The 41-year-old McGlothlin will be nearly 70 when released from prison. U.S. Attorney for Oregon Billy Williams said: “It is unthinkable that someone would prey upon infants, toddlers, and disabled children, yet that is exactly what James McGlothlin did.”

Investigators learned of his actions while investigating an online forum that advertised and distributed child pornography.
