Greg Allen Henke, 41, pleaded guilty on Monday to sexual exploitation of a child and possession of child pornography, according to Acting US Attorney Robert J. Troester.
On May 31, 2021, FBI agents arrested Henke in Oklahoma City after encountering an undercover agent to attempt to engage in sexual activity with children. He has been in federal custody since his arrest.
Prior to his arrest, Henke worked at Highland Park Elementary School in the Mid-Del School District.
On June 1, 2021, a federal grand jury issued an indictment against Henke, charging him with attempting to receive child pornography and attempting to coerce and incite a minor. This indictment alleged that on or around May 10, 2021, Henke knowingly attempted to coerce and seduce a minor. This indictment alleged that around May 10, 2021, Henke knowingly attempted to receive child pornography using interstate and foreign commerce means and facilities.
This indictment further alleged that between April 1, 2021 and May 13, 2021, Henke used a mobile phone and the Internet to attempt to persuade, incite, please and coerce a minor into sexual activity.
On September 7, 2021, a federal grand jury issued a substitute indictment against Henke. He added to the original indictment one charge of possession of material containing child pornography and two charges of production of child pornography. Specifically, the alternate indictment alleged that between 2019 and 2021, Henke used two underage students at Highland Park Elementary School to engage in sexually explicit behavior.
He also alleged that Henke used his cell phone to capture the sexually explicit behavior.
At a plea hearing today, Henke pleaded guilty to one count of producing child pornography using a student while working at Highland Park Elementary School. Henke also pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography on multiple electronic devices. As part of a plea deal, the United States agreed to dismiss the remaining charges upon his conviction.

A guilty plea for producing child pornography carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in federal prison.
