LOS ANGELES, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- A California prep baseball coach and teacher posed as a young woman on Facebook to solicit sexual pictures of about 35 young boys, prosecutors said.

Zachary Reeder, 30, a history teacher at Servite High School in Anaheim, Calif., is charged with 110 felonies, including 34 counts each of distributing pornography to a minor, contacting a child with the intent to commit a lewd act and using a minor for sex acts. Other charges include six felony counts of committing a lewd act upon a child and one felony count of bringing obscene material into California, court records show.

Prosecutors said Reeder posed as a young blond woman and sent nude pictures to boys, some as young as 14, in an attempt to solicit return photos, the Los Angeles Times said Tuesday.

Reeder was also a volunteer baseball coach at Beckman High School in Irvine, Calif., for four seasons.

Prosecutors are still investigating to see whether Reeder intentionally targeted any of his students or players.
