Former Ohio elementary school teacher, school board member accused of luring boys for sex


TOLEDO, Ohio — A former Ohio elementary school teacher and school board member is accused of using false identities on Facebook to lure teenage boys for sexual relationships.

Thirty-six-year-old Brian Anders was charged this week with a federal count of receipt of material involving the sexual exploitation of a minor. The Lima News ( ) reports that's in addition to four counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor he's already facing in state court in Allen County in northwest Ohio.

Anders is in jail with a hearing set for Nov. 24. He has pleaded not guilty to the state charges. No attorney information was available.

Authorities say Anders taught music in an elementary school in Lima (LY'-muh). He also was a music director at a church, and served on the Elida School Board.
