vLawrence W. Joynes, a former Montgomery County, Maryland school teacher was indicted several days ago in connection with the alleged sexual abuse of 14 elementary school girls and rape of a middle school student during his long career with the school system. Joynes allegedly posed the girls in sexually suggestive ways, and recorded and photographed them. Apparently, a number of the backgrounds were of a Montgomery County classroom. At this point, it is unknown what, if anything, school officials knew about Joynes behavior. It will be interesting to see how the criminal trial unfolds.
