Diane Graham, a kindergarten teacher at Starry Elementary in Marion has been charged with Failure to Report Child Abuse as a Mandatory Reporter, following events in her classroom last year.

According to KCRG, 15-year-old Logan McMurrin has been convicted on three different counts of sexually abusing students in Graham’s classroom. McMurrin was a volunteer in Graham’s classroom. Four families are suing the Marion Community School District and Graham.

According to court records, two different students told Graham last August that they were being abused. KCRG says parents and the lawsuits indicate students were abused at nap time, in view of other students. The Linn County Attorney’s Office alleges there was no investigation because Graham didn’t report the information to DHS or police, and that the abuse continued into October.

Graham, was placed on paid leave last November. She’s still listed on the Marion Independent School District’s website as a kindergarten teacher at Starry Elementary. Graham will make her initial court appearance Monday, April 24.
