reporting (let me acknowledge the ABAJournal for the first catch on this story) on the "prominent" Oveland Park Law Partner who was sending video of himself masturbating in his law office in an effort to entice a 14 year old into meeting him for sex. Thi is Joe Lambe's account:
A partner in an Overland Park law firm is charged with attempting to entice a minor and with sending and receiving child pornography. Federal prosecutors on Thursday charged Samuel P. Logan, 45, of Kansas City, in federal court in Kansas. Federal judges in that state quickly recused themselves, and the case is now in federal court in Kansas City. Logan’s father, James K. Logan, is a former federal appellate judge who heard Kansas cases and before that was dean of the KU law school from 1961 to 1968.
Samuel Logan is a partner in Foulston Siefkin, the largest law firm based in Kansas with offices in Overland Park, Wichita and Topeka. Jim Oliver, another partner in the firm, said it cooperated with FBI agents who were there Thursday. He declined further comment.
According to federal charging documents, Logan used a web camera to send images of himself masturbating in what appears to be a law office.
From June 1 through July 22, he sent them to an undercover officer posing as a 14-year-old girl and also engaged in sexual conversations with the officer and sent images of adult and child pornography, prosecutors say. During conversations with undercover agents, Logan told them he was Sam, that he was 45 years old and that he was an Overland Park lawyer who worked on the fourth floor and drove a Toyota Camry, according to court records.
