FRENCH LICK, Ind. - Earlier this week, Indiana State Police Detective Shane Staggs arrested Isral Qualkenbush, 37, French Lick for:

1 Count, Obstruction of Justice, IC 35-44.1-2-2, Level 6 Felony. 

Qualkenbush's arrest stemmed from a previous investigation lead by Detective Shane Staggs, where former Springs Valley School Teacher Kari Buchanan, 42 of West Baden Springs, was arrested for Possession of Child Pornography for allegedly having inappropriate communication/s with a juvenile Springs Valley High School student in December of 2018. 

Buchanan was also recently arrested again on June 5th, 2019 for:

- Obstruction of Justice, 1 Count, 35-44.1-2-2, Level 6 Felony

- Invasion of Privacy, 1 Count, IC 35-46-1-15.1, Class A Misdemeanor

Qualkenbush's arrest was the result of his involvement in aiding Buchanan in communicating with her original juvenile victim earlier this month via cellphone, at which point Buchanan attempted to persuade the victim to change their statement to the Orange County Prosecutors Office, subsequently obstructing the investigation. 

Qualkenbush was incarcerated at the Orange County Jail before being released on a $1,005.00 cash bond.
