Lynn Seibel has been charged with 17 counts of criminal sexual conduct in Minnesota stemming from the years that he was a drama teacher at the Faribault prep school. Police suspect he had inappropriate contact with students.
But Seibel is also charged in Los Angeles, where he lives and where police say they found child porn on his computer. He appeared in court on those charges Thursday and has pleaded not guilty, Fox 9 reports. Minnesota authorities plan to let the California case run its course before bringing him back to the state.
In a separate story, Fox 9 talks to the widow of another Shattuck-St. Mary's teacher who committed suicide after he was accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student. She thinks the school mishandled both that case and the Lynn Seibel case.
