GILROY, Calif. – A science teacher at a school in California has been arrested for sexual misconduct with hundreds of boys.

A complaint was filed against Douglas Le in October, 2014. That’s when Celeste Benn’s daughter received inappropriate text messages from him at Gilroy High School.

Instead of dismissing him, the district gave Le a notice of unprofessional conduct. He was allowed to return back to the classroom.

Now, Le has been arrested and charged with luring high school boys and persuading them to send nude photos of themselves.

Police say Le posed online as a woman, to meet more than 500 underage boys.  Many of them were current and former Gilroy High School students.
