OLATHE, Kan. — A Johnson County judge denied a request by a former Olathe elementary school teacher who requested bond as he appeals his conviction.
The judge ruled James Loganbill, 60, must stay behind bars at the Johnson County Jail.
The former teacher was sentenced to a year in jail, and began serving it immediately following his conviction. The judge also determined his crimes were sexually motivated, so he must register as a sex offender for 15-years after he is released.
The judge did agree to recommend Loganbill for work release as he serves his sentence, if jailers at the Johnson County Jail determine the former teacher is eligible.
