High School Baseball Coach Catfishes Teens


We've got another case of catfishing to report and this one is disturbing.

Orange County (Calif.) prosecutors allege Zachary Reeder, an assistant baseball coach at Beckman (Irvine), created a fake profile of a blonde woman on Facebook to persuade boys to send him pornographic photos of themselves. Some of Reeder's 35 known victims were between the ages of 14 and 15, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.

Reeder, who has also worked as a history teacher at Servite (Anaheim, Calif.), has been charged with 110 felones, including 34 counts of distributing pornography to a minor, 

The Irvine Daily Pilot reported that there is no indication that Reeder had any physical contact with his victims.

Thanks to Prep Rally for the heads up.
