PORTLAND — Hours after he was convicted in federal court in Portland of possessing child pornography, former Beaverton, Ore., teacher Logan Storm left his electronic monitoring bracelet in a Troutdale, Ore., park and disappeared.

An assistant U.S. attorney had argued Tuesday that Storm was a flight risk, but Judge Ancer Haggerty sided with defense lawyers and released him. Storm faces more than seven years in prison at his sentencing, scheduled for April 8.

The Oregonian reports the U.S. Marshals Service issued a wanted poster Wednesday for Storm.

The case against him began in July 2010 when his girlfriend reported finding images on his computer of children being sexually abused. Storm fled the country but returned in February 2011 voluntarily.
