Douglas Le, a former Gilroy High School teacher and Track & Field coach, has been arrested and charged with multiple sex crimes after it was learned he was catfishing his students. Authorities have charged Le with “possession of matter depicting a minor engaging or simulating sexual conduct, annoying or molesting a child, 9 counts of sending harmful matter to a minor, and 9 counts of communicating with a minor with the intent to commit specified crime,” according to the district attorney’s office. That’s a total of 20 felonies.
According to reports, Douglas Le created a fake Facebook profile named “Rae Pelletier.” Rae was an attractive woman (whose photos were actually of an unidentified adult film actress) who was constantly sending nude photos and soliciting her friends to do the same. In reality, it was all part of Douglas’ plan to get naked pictures of his students.
