Allard Brothers Charged in Porn Case

Fotor0513153557EUGENE, Ore. — A Eugene teacher and his brother have now been charged with encouraging child sexual abuse.

A spokesman with the Bethel School District says the justice department told district officials Jody and Jacky Allard were indicted on 10 counts each of first-degree and second degree encouraging child sexual abuse.

The justice department would only confirm to KEZI 9 News the Allard brothers were arrested in Broomfield, Colorado and it’s beginning the extradition process.

As soon as we posted the story Tuesday, social media erupted with parents and former students saying they were shocked by the news that the Allards, specifically Jody, were involved in a child porn investigation.

Jody taught at Shasta Middle School for 16 years. The Allards were arrested in Colorado for being fugitives of justice and falsely reporting to authorities.

“He definitely took a positive affect on my life and one of the few people that I remember and think about to this day, so hopefully he is not, but like I say, some people change 10 years,” said Eugene resident Rebecca Max.

“It’s very concerning because I trusted them with my prized possessions. This obviously was several was quite a few years ago my boys are grown now but they mentored my oldest boy especially and I am just shocked that to hear this because my boy was alone with them,” said a mother who wished to remain anonymous.

The Willamette Valley Babe Ruth Baseball League, where the men were coaches, didn’t want to comment on the investigation Wednesday.

The Bethel School District says it will recommend to the school board that Allard be terminated from the district.

The district says Jody Allard has been on administrative leave since March and hasn’t had any contact with students.
