“She told me to stick my butt out, so I did,” the girl said.

“And she took a picture.”

Crain was arrested after she brought several girls to her house and made them change into bras and panties. The girls were then photographed and videotaped as they danced around and decorated a Christmas tree inside Crain's home.

One of the girls told her parents what happened following the so-called “Christmas party,” which led to the downfall Crain and Doby.

The girl described her mother's reaction when she revealed what her teacher had asked her to do.

“She went in the bathroom and cried,” the girl said.

Chapter comes to a close

Crain's sentencing brings to a close a dark chapter a rural community's history.

The arrest of the teacher in December 2011 and the lurid details that followed cast a pall over McLoud and its 4,000 residents.

Parents of the exploited girls are suing the school district, an institution that was once the pride of the small town.
