A high school teacher and church group leader in San Antonio, Texas is in jail after confessing to taking part in sexual acts with at least ten teenage boys.
Police say Jared Anderson hosted parties at his house on multiple occasions, where he invited 7 to 12 teenage boys to his home and encouraged them into lewd behavior.
San Antonio Police Department Sgt. Jesse Salame told reporters:
“[The parties involved] anywhere from seven to 12 boys, ranging in ages from 15 to 17, maybe one or two 18-year-olds. During those parties, he played games where he encouraged them to get naked and perform sexual acts on each other.”
According to reports, the 28-year-old hosted a party on February 12th with seven boys ranging from 15 to 17 years old. The party was called “Bros Night,” with a sign on the door reading “The last one to strip naked loses.”
WTF?! How is this guy just now getting caught?!
Salame said all of the boys got naked and were coerced to perform sex acts, adding:
“He’s having parties where he’s encouraging these kids to strip naked, to perform sex acts on each other, sometimes on him. Sometimes taking photographs, very graphic, disgusting sexual things going on.”
The English teacher has been placed on administrative leave from Judson High School pending the results of the investigation.
Anderson was also a group leader at a local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, which issued the following statement:
“The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has zero tolerance for abuse of any kind. When we learned of this situation, local leaders reported it immediately to law enforcement. Anderson has been removed from all responsibilities within the local congregation. The Church is supportive of the efforts of authorities to investigate and prosecute this matter.”
Police are still looking for more victims and anticipate filing additional charges of sexual performance of a child.
