A high school teacher is set to be arraigned Friday in Newport Beach on charges he used a fake girl's Facebook profile to lure teenage boys to send him sexually explicit photos and videos of themselves.
Zachary Joshua Reeder, 30, of Orange, is to be charged with about 60 felonies. He could face up to 44 years in prison if convicted. He taught at Servite High School and previously worked as a teacher and coach in Irvine.
He allegedly established online relationships with at least 106 boys, some of them students he knew through teaching and coaching, prosecutors said.
While teaching at the all-male private school in Anaheim, authorities said, Reeder created a Facebook page designed to win over teenage boys and coax them into posting sexually provocative photos and videos of themselves.
