Kimberly Crane has admitted to making and distributing child pornography, but she has an entire list of excuses for her actions. High cholesterol, menopause and aching joints all made the cut.

Crane recently submitted a letter of admission to Pottawatomie County District Court in order to try to avoid jail time. The 49-year-old former elementary school teacher faces life in prison for the charges leveled against her, but is appealing for probation.

Gary Doby, a retired professor of early childhood development, was the recipient of Crane’s pictures and has already been sentenced to 18 life terms.

Crane’s list of excuses for her behavior extend way beyond the ones previously mentioned. She also listed depression, her husband ignoring her, hypnosis, weight gain, panic attacks, sleep deprivation and a rapidly changing hormonal imbalance as reasons why she thought it was a good idea to make and distribute child porn.

Doby has been deemed Crane’s “cyber-lover.”

“I found myself giving in to all he wanted,” Crane said. “Gary briefly spoke of his fascinations with young girls, but I didn’t see it as a fetish. He said it made him smile and feel good, so I wanted to continue to keep him happy.”

Nine students, ranging in ages from eight to 11, previously testified that Crane took photos of them in her classroom during a pizza party and at her home in their underwear. She also secretly videotaped them while they were changing.
