A 40-year old high school teacher named Bruce Lanctot turned himself in after getting caught sending dick pics to students on Grindr.
Lanctot taught social studies at Nashua High School South in New Hampshire form almost 15 years. According to reports, he had been communicating with several underage boys for months before one finally opened up to the Division of Children, Youth and Families.
The service center then reported the case to Nashua police, who launched an investigation. The photos and texts proved to shove Lanctot in a corner, so he ended up turning himself in this week. Now, he faces several charges, including two felonies related to using a computer device to lure minors into sex.
“The victims reported they received numerous nude photos of Lanctot,” police said in a statement. “In addition, the victims reported being solicited by Lanctot to meet with him and engage in sexual conduct.”
Allegedly, Lanctot informed the kids that he was a teacher at their school, and told police he knew he was communicating with kids.
While he did arrange to have a few meetings with boys, police are still investigating whether or not any of them actually happened. If they did, it’s not going to be good.
The school itself has around 2,200 students, and since finding out, school administrators have placed him on administration leave.
I don’t know about you, but this was my biggest fantasy in 10th grade. My social studies teacher was also the football coach (hey, Coach Donahue!). But in the eyes of the law, it’s not looking good. The youngest child to come forward to the police was 15-years old — that’s not cute.
To make matter worse, Lanctot also served as the co-advisor of the Gay Alliance Club at the school, though the superintendent confirmed that his involvement was minimal.
