Athletic trainer at Blue Valley Southwest charged with 2 counts of sexual exploitation of child
JOHNSON COUNTY, Kan. (KCTV) - A man who was an athletic trainer at Blue Valley Southwest High School has been charged with two counts of sexual exploitation of a child in Johnson County, Kansas.
Court documents allege that Christopher T. Poskey, 39, committed the crimes between March 29 and March 31 of this year.
For both counts, the complaint document alleges Poskey “did. . . unlawfully and feloniously, employ, use, persuade, induce, entice, or coerce a child under 18 years of age, or a person whom the offender believed to be a child under 18 years of age, to engage in sexually explicit conduct, with the intent to promote any performance. . .”
“Blue Valley School District Personnel” is listed under the “witnesses” section of the complaint document.
The University of Kansas Health System provides athletic training to Blue Valley Southwest, according to the school’s website.
The University of Kansas Health System provided the following statement to the media on Friday:
KCTV5 News has reached out to the school district for a statement.
A cached version of one of the district’s webpages indicates he began working as a full-time athletic trainer at the high school in 2014. However, a Saturday afternoon check of Blue Valley’s various staff directories online does not show him currently listed as a trainer with the district.
Poskey’s bond has been set at $250,000, cash or surety. No contact with children and not using the internet are included among the bond conditions.
