French Lick Man Arrested for Obstruction of Justice

Indiana State Police arrested a French Lick man earlier this week in connection with the case of a former Springs Valley school teacher who is charged with Possession of Child Pornography.

42-year-old Kari Buchanan of West Baden is accused of having inappropriate communications with a juvenile Springs Valley High School student in December of 2018.

37-year-old Isral Qualkenbush is facing one count of Obstruction of Justice for allegedly aiding Buchanan in communicating with her original juvenile victim attempting to persuade the victim to change their statement to the Orange County Prosecutors Office, subsequently obstructing the investigation.

Buchanan was also recently arrested again on June 5th for Obstruction of Justice and Invasion of Privacy.
