SAN ANTONIO, TX (WCMH) – A Texas high school teacher is in jail after confessing to lewd conduct with at least ten teenage boys.

Jared Anderson, 28, teaches high school English in San Antonio. He was also a group leader at a local church, WOAI-TV reports.

Police say Anderson hosted parties at his house on several occasions and invited teenage boys.

“(They involved) anywhere from seven to 12 boys, ranging in ages from 15 to 17, maybe one or two 18-year-olds,” SAPD Sgt. Jesse Salame told KSAT-TV. “During those parties, he played games where he encouraged them to get naked and perform sexual acts on each other.”

One of these parties happened February 12th with seven boys ranging from 15 to 17 years old. The party was called “Bros Night,” and there was a sign on the door reading, “The last one to strip naked loses.”

Police say all of the boys got naked, and Anderson coerced them into lewd conduct.

“He’s having parties where he’s encouraging these kids to strip naked, to perform sex acts on each other, sometimes on him,” Sgt. Salame told KENS-TV. “Sometimes taking photographs, very graphic, disgusting sexual things going on.”

Anderson has been placed on administrative leave pending the results of the investigation. Police are still looking for additional victims and expect to file additional charges of sexual performance of a child.
