SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA — A former teacher at Wolf Canyon Elementary School – who posed as a girl on a webcam chat website called “MeetMe” – was sentenced this month to 125 years to life in prison. John Raymond Kinloch, 43, was first arrested in November 2012, following an investigation by the San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Kinloch reportedly posed as a 13-year-old girl to befriend boys ages 12-16. At the time of his arrest on child molestation charges and child pornography charges, the 41-year-old had been teaching for 14 years and had passed background checks designed to protect students in the Chula Vista Elementary School District. One of the victims testified in 2013 that he met Kinloch when he was a student Kinloch’s 2nd grade class at Feaster Charter School on Flower Street. When the victim was in 3rd grade, Kinloch asked him to take off his clothes. Kinloch replortedly asked the victim to expose himself “many times” but touched the boy’s genitals only occasionally. The molestation continued for five or six years. At the time of his arrest, Kinloch was teaching first grade at Wolf Canyon Elementary School.
