An Oregon high school teacher was arrested after he gave a student an inappropriate homework assignment.
Richard Fay asked for sexually-explicit pictures from a 17-year-old girl over the 2015/2016 school year at South Medford High School, police said. The student told police that she sent nude and clothed photos of herself to Fay at his request, according to court documents.
Medford police said at least one more student could have been involved with sexting Fay, and the investigation is ongoing.
Fay is facing five charges: Using a Child in a Display of Sexually Explicit Conduct, Attempt to Commit a Class A Felony, Encouraging Child Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree, Luring a Minor, and Attempt to Commit a Class C/Unclassified Felony.
“Student safety is an ongoing priority for the Medford School District and will continue to do everything we can to protect our students so that they can receive the education they deserve,” a school statement said.
