FRUITA, Colo. — A Western Colorado teacher was arrested this week, and stands accused of soliciting nude photos from high school students.
Fruita Police say Randy Majors, a 58-year-old teacher at Fruita 8-9 School, was arrested after a report from a mother of one of his former students, who was 16-years-old at the time. According to the arrest affidavit, the woman found a message from Majors on her daughter’s Facebook profile, asking her to send him topless photos discreetly.
During the conversation that Majors had with the now-former student, he indicated that he was nervous someone else may have been reading the two’s private Facebook conversation. After that point, the girl stopped responding to Majors’ messages.
Police say Majors later admitted to asking several girls for nude photos. He is facing three counts of sexual exploitation of a child and five counts of attempted sexual exploitation of a child.
