PHOENIX (AP) - Phoenix police say they've arrested a former math teacher at Brophy College Preparatory School on child molestation charges.
The Phoenix school fired 71-year-old Dan Whitehead in November after two former students came forward and said he had molested them in the 1980s. The students did not want to contact police.
Phoenix police investigated anyway and said Saturday they were able to find several adult males who said they were victims or witnesses to molestations by Whitehead in the 1980s. Police say Whitehead would invite students home, ply them alcohol and then fondle or try to fondle the boys.
He was arrested Saturday on a felony sexual assault charge, 2 felony counts of attempted sexual abuse and 6 other misdemeanor and felony charges.
It was unclear if Whitehead has a lawyer.
