A former teach at a Beaverton middle school is on the run again, according to officials. Logan Storm, 35, formerly a teacher at Stoller Middle School apparently removed his monitoring bracelet in a park in Troutdale and left it there. Storm was found guilty earlier this month of having hundreds of child porn images on his computer.
According to a report by KATU.com, Rus Burger of the U.S. Marshals Service stated that they believe that Storm will likely reoffend and they have an entire warrant squad investigating his whereabouts. This is the second time Storm has fled from authorities in connection with child porn allegations; when the porn was first uncovered several months ago, Storm fled to London and was there for 9 months until investigators convinced him to return to deal with the allegations. Storm was also initially accused of child sex abuse but those allegations were eventually withdrawn.
Authorities say that storm was last seen driving a green Ford F-150 with Oregon license plate 726-CKA.
Sex crime allegations are a very serious matter and can have long term repercussions. Attempting to evade authorities can only make matters worse, as now Storm will now be subject to consequences with non-compliance with the terms of his sentence. A conviction for sexually related crimes can result in a having to register as a sex offender, and potential limitations on where one can work or live.
