PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Logan Storm, already serving an 8-year prison sentence on child pornography charges, is back in court for a trial on sexual abuse charges.

The one-time Beaverton math teacher is accused of molesting two girls while swimming in the Mt. Scott Pool on July 10, 2007.

The jury was chosen and seated by Monday afternoon.

Testimony began with the victim, who was 11 at the time of the alleged abuse. She is now 18 and answered questions from the prosecutor. The defense will cross-examine her beginning at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

In September 2013, Storm was sentenced in US District Court in Portland to seven years for possession of child pornography and another year for failure to appear in federal court, to be served consecutively.

On Jan. 29, 2013, the former Stoller Middle School teacher was convicted on one federal count of possession of child pornography. However, the following day, he removed his court-ordered monitoring bracelet and failed to appear for a detention hearing. The bracelet was found that same day at Lewis and Clark State Park near Troutdale. He had been staying with his parents in Southeast Portland.

On March 11, the Federal Ministerial Police, a Mexican federal law enforcement agency, arrested Storm in Mexico City based on information provided by US Marshals. Storm was flown from Mexico City to Houston, where he was lodged in the Harris County Jail. He was extradited to Portland on April 18. On June 26, he pleaded guilty to fleeing.

KOIN 6 News will continue to follow this trial.
