The trial of a Marion school teacher accused of failing to report sex abuse of children in her classroom will be moved out of Linn County.

District Judge Casey Jones granted a change of venue in the trial of 59-year-old Diane Graham. Graham is accused of failing to report multiple reports of sex abuse by 15-year-old classroom volunteer Logan McMurrin in 2016. McMurrin was convicted in Linn County Juvenile Court of three counts of second-degree sexual abuse against a 5-year-old and two 6-year-old girls.

In his ruling, the judge said that pretrial publicity from the conviction of McMurrin along with new allegations of abuse at the school prevents her from receiving a fair trial in Linn County.

There is no word yet on when or where the trial will now be held.
