SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) - A judge is considering a request for a change of venue for a former third-grade teacher and a retired college professor facing child pornography charges.

Attorneys on Wednesday waived their request for a hearing on whether Kimberly Crain and Gary Doby should face trial somewhere other than Pottawatomie County.

District attorney Richard Smothermon says the judge did not say when he'd rule. Neither Crain nor Doby were in court Wednesday.

Defense attorney Cregg Webb says a hearing was unnecessary because arguments were contained in written motions.

Prosecutors allege that Crain took photos of young girls while they changed clothes in her classroom and at her home and shared the images with Doby, a retired professor of early childhood development.

Both Crain and Doby have pleaded not guilty to the charges.
