POTTAWATOMIE COUNTY, Oklahoma -

A former third-grade McLoud teacher who pleaded no contest to child exploitation and pornography charges is scheduled to be sentenced Friday in Pottawatomie County.

Kimberly Crain, 50, pleaded no contest in January to sexual exploitation of a child under 12, and possession of child pornography. Her co-defendant, former professor of early childhood development Gary Doby of Pennsylvania, also pleaded guilty to child exploitation charges and was sentenced to life in prison.

Prosecutors allege Crain took photos of young girls while they changed clothes in her third-grade classroom and her home, including photos of some of the girls naked, and sent the images to Doby.

Crain faces up to life in prison but in a letter, she asked District Judge John Canavan Jr. to sentence her to probation. In the letter, she described her crimes and blamed her actions on a multitude of personal problems, including menopause, weight gain and depression. Crain claimed all those factors affected her mental health.

Canavan has told Crain that she faces a minimum sentence of 25 years.
