A 39-year-old special physical education instructor, with ties to the Oregon City School District, is in federal custody on an allegation he made child pornography and had detailed notes on how he would drug two children so he could sexually abuse a much younger girl.
James Ian McGlothlin, who lives in Southwest Portland, was arrested Friday evening in the 11800 block of SW Kerr Parkway in Lake Oswego.
Federal officials confirm that while under investigation, McGlothlin was an adapted physical education instructional assistant with the Oregon City School District.
The school district has cooperated fully with federal investigators and has taken steps to notify parents about his arrest. KOIN 6 News has learned once the school district was made aware of the investigation, it suspended McGlothlin on Feb. 16, and prevented him from having access to children.
Investigators told KOIN 6 News they are seeking the public’s help to identify possible unknown minor victims.
