According to court documents, Craghead allegedly targeted two girls between January and April 2020.

Prosecutors said his alleged blackmail attempts caused ‘great emotional distress’ to the two teenagers. 

A search warrant for SnapChat uncovered that Craghead was speaking with multiple underage girls and had obtained several images of self-produced child pornography, court documents say. 

Prosecutors described him as a ‘danger to the community’ and a ‘flight risk’. 

On his online profile on the Athlete’s Village, Craghead describes himself as: ‘A husband, father of three, a JH math teacher, a head XC coach and a Distance Track coach for North Callaway and Follower of Christ.’ 

Craghead’s wife teaches at the same school district as her husband.
