The president of a local school board in Ohio resigned after he was caught attempting to meet with whom he thought was an 11-year-old girl after allegedly exchanging inappropriate messages with her.

John Gray, who was serving his fifth term as president of the Goshen Local School board in Goshen, Ohio, admitted to traveling about two hours from Cincinnati to Indiana to meet with the girl, according to the video uploaded to YouTube and Facebook on Saturday by the groups PCI: Predator Catchers Indianapolis and PCM: Predator Catchers Muncie.

The groups are comprised of volunteers who work to expose sexual predators, according to their websites.


The video, which is titled “60 Year old President of Goshen OH school board, meeting an 11 y/o,” depicts Gray trying to explain himself for more than 30 minutes as three volunteers grill him regarding text messages in which he allegedly talked to the girl about undressing, kissing and receiving a massage.
