Pedophile Arrested: School Board President Resigns After Being Busted (WATCH)


An Ohio school board president has resigned after being busted in a ‘To Catch a Predator’ type of YouTube sting targeting pedophiles. Goshen Local Schools President John Gray was caught by volunteer pedophile exposers “PCM: Predator Catchers Muncie” while allegedly trying to have a liaison with somebody that he thought to be an 11-year-old girl.

Gray drove 3 hours to Randolph County, Indiana on Saturday, where he wanted to meet the person that he was led to think was a child.

In the video, Gray is faced in a shop by a lady declaring to be the mom of the “kid” that he had been talking to and was attempting to fulfill.

The lady and the cam crew ensure him that they are not police, however, they wish to have a word with him outside.

“You’re Taylor’s mom?” Gray asks. “Okay.”

Gray tells the team that he is 55-years-old and that he believed the child to be “12 or 13, something like that.” He was repeatedly informed during their online and phone exchanges that the lady was “11-years-old.”

The disgraced school authorities stated that he had messaged the lady on Kik after getting her handle from “someone else.”  He did not specify who.

“I find there’s a lot of kids on there that need support,” Gray said. Kik has a reputation for being unable to handle the child exploitation that runs rampant on the app.

Gray tried to laugh off the circumstance and pretend that he had just stopped at the Dollar General, 3 hours from his house, to purchase Gatorade and gummy bears for the kid. He claimed that she wished to have a sexual encounter with him, but that he was not interested.

Eventually, the group faces him directly about the messages that he was sending out. Gray confessed that he stated that he wished to “cuddle,” “make out,” and enjoy movies.

Gray also consistently stated that the “child” was “starving” for “male attention” since he thought that she did not have a father. He admitted that he told her he would “make out” with her as a “father-daughter type deal.” He likewise confessed to saying that he desired the woman to design in their “bra and panties,” give her a “hot bath and a massage,” and rub her private parts.

Gray desired the child to call him “grandpa” while he was doing this and state “don’t touch me there grandpa.” He claimed this was due to the fact that he is a grandfather and that he has a 7-year-old granddaughter.

When asked how this would not intensify to sex, Gray answered that he can not get erections.

At the end of the video, Farmland Police Department and the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office get here and handcuff Gray– however, he is ultimately enabled to leave on his own.

“On Sunday, Goshen police confirmed that they were at Gray’s house and he was taken to the hospital for a psych evaluation,” local news station WLWT reports.


The school district issued a statement saying that they were warned of Gray’s actions late on April 23rd and he resigned on the next day.

“A video posted Saturday evening on YouTube shows John Gray, Goshen Local Schools board president, being handcuffed by law enforcement in Indiana. The content of the video is deeply disturbing to our entire school district and Goshen Local School community,” Goshen Local Schools Superintendent Darrell Edwards wrote.

Gray was serving his 5th term as president.

“To be clear, Saturday’s incident occurred outside of the Goshen Local School district. Our district leaders will be consulting with legal counsel and should more information become available, we will communicate it to our families immediately,” the statement continued. “Due to the fact that this is an ongoing investigation we have no other comments at this time.”
