We're starting to think maybe the California state motto should be changed to "Eureka! Here is Where All (Allegedly) Pervy Teachers Work!" The latest in what seems like a staggering streak of educators locked up for lascivious extra-curricular activities is a story out of Irvine, where an English teacher at a Lutheran high school may have been sending a student nude pics of himself via ye olde cellphone.

25-year-old Dominic Witter of Laguna Niguel was hauled in as part of a sting op Thursday night, according to Virginia Kice of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, one of several local agencies involved in the investigation, reports City News Service.

Witter was arrested at a Laguna Hills pizza parlor, where he thought he was going to be rendezvous-ing with the female student to whom he was allegedly sending the naughty texts and photos.

Investigators are expected to present their case to the Orange County District Attorney's Office early next week in order to determine what, if any, charges Witter will face.
