FRUITA, Colo. (AP) -- A Colorado teacher is facing charges after he was accused of asking students to send him topless photos of themselves.
The Fruita Police Department says 58-year-old public school teacher Randy Majors is facing 3 counts of sexual exploitation of a child and 5 counts of attempted sexual exploitation of a child.
According to an arrest affidavit, a parent told police she was going through her 16-year-old daughter's Facebook account and found a message asking her daughter to send nude pictures of herself and to not tell anyone.
Authorities say Majors admitted he had asked a couple of girls for indecent pictures.
Majors could not be located for comment and court records did not indicate he has an attorney.
