A Blue Springs man, who formerly taught and coached at Blue Springs South High School and was already awaiting trial in Jackson County on six charges of statutory sodomy, has now been indicted by a federal grand jury for sexual exploitation of several minors.

James Russell Green, 53, was charged in a nine-count indictment returned under seal Tuesday. The indictment was unsealed Wednesday when Green was arrested and made his initial federal court appearance in Kansas City. He had posted bond in April 2017 shortly after his arrest on state charges but now remains in federal custody.

His trial in Jackson County had been scheduled for February but was rescheduled for Sept. 4.

The federal grand jury charged Green with producing child pornography, possessing child porn, six counts of attempting to produce child pornography and one count of recording illicit sexual encounters with at least six child victims.

Green had been a teacher and swim coach in the North Kansas City District from 1990 to 2005, then at Blue Springs South from 2005 to 2009. He had been teaching and coaching at Northgate Middle School in the NKC District when he was arrested and charged in April 2017.

At that time, Green was arrested outside Kauffman Stadium, the site of his second job, while investigators executed a search warrant of his Blue Springs house. That search warrant came after a man, now 28, told police that in 2005, when he was a student at Smithville High School, Green had sexually assaulted him on multiple occasions at Green's Blue Springs home.

That victim had met Green in an internet chat room, and Green then hired him to do yard work. Investigators also learned Green had been communicating in recent months with another 16-year-old victim, to whom he sent suggestive clothing via Amazon, according to circuit court documents.

Items recovered during that search, including secretly recorded videos from a hidden camera, formed much of the basis of the federal charges.

Federal court documents allege that Green engaged in sexual contact and exploitation of minors over a period of 20 years, and that between November 2016 and April 2017 he tried to entice a minor victim to engage in illegal sexual activity.

Several videos, made from the late 1990s until approximately 2014 or 2015, depicted nude minors (ages 14-17) in the locker room. The attempted child porn production stems from these videos, according to court documents.

The child porn production stems from secretly recorded video found in Green's house, allegedly involving a sexual encounter with a 13-year-old victim between December 2013 and March 2014. Green allegedly could also be heard encouraging the victim to recruit other minors for sexual activity.

The possession charge stems in part from another secret video recording depicted a sexual encounter with a different victim, according to court documents.

According to federal court documents, investigators also found numerous images of child porn and sexually graphic chats on Green’s computer and other storage devices.

According to circuit court documents, Green told investigators had he had two sexual relationships with victims under the age of 18, and while working as a teacher and coach at various schools he used a hidden camera in locker rooms to film young males.

The federal case was investigated by Blue Springs Police and the FBI Child Exploitation Task Force.
