A 35-year-old substitute teacher already charged with more than a dozen counts of having sex with his students was arrested Monday on four new charges.
Todd J. Haluch of Huntington Beach had been free after posting $250,000 bond on the original charges, but a Superior Court judge increased his bail by $250,000 and returned him to jail. He was ordered to return to court Oct. 16 to enter a plea.
Haluch was originally charged with 13 counts of sexual abuse involving four girls ranging in age from 13 to 17. Newport Beach Police Sgt. Steve Shulman said the four new charges resulted after authorities learned of a fifth alleged victim.
Shulman said Haluch taught at Pacifica High School in Garden Grove from 1996 to 1998, Huntington Beach and Ocean View high schools from 1997 to 1999, TeWinkle Middle School in Costa Mesa from 1999 to 2000 and Corona del Mar High from 1999 to 2000.
