One of the victims is currently suing the suspect and the school district. She claims the teacher would send her notes in class that read, "I've been thinking about you," and "I want to kiss you."

The victim also claims that the suspect pressured her into having sex with him at his home.

When the suspect was arrested at his home, his three children were reportedly "running around inside the house naked and touching their own genitals."
