IRVINE, Calif. (KTLA) — A teacher at a reputable Catholic high school in Orange County was in court Friday to answer to child pornography charges.
Prosecutors allege Zachary Joshua Reeder posed as a “young, blonde, white female” on Facebook to befriend and seduce underage boys and luring them into sending him sexually explicit pictures of themselves.
At least 70 victims have come forward. The youngest victim is 14, according to Irvine police investigators.
Reeder is facing 140 felony counts, including possession of child pornography, distributing obscene matter involving minors, exhibiting lewd material to a minor and luring a child with intent to commit a specified crime.
