In today's creepy teacher news, an Irvine man who was arrested earlier this month for trying to set up a time to have sex with a female student and sending her naked pictures has been charged with two felony counts and one misdemeanor.

Dominic Witter, 25, allegedly got in touch with his 15-year-old victim via text. He sent nude photos of himself then asked for pictures of her in return. Witter, who taught English at Crean Lutheran High School, then arranged to meet the girl at a pizza place, reports KTLA, but -- surprise! -- was greeted there by sheriff's deputies instead, who arrested him on the spot.

According to ABC 7, Witter is being charged with attempted contact with a child with intent to commit lewd acts, meeting with a minor with intent to engage in lewd conduct, and arranging to meet a minor for lewd purposes.

He posted $100,000 bail, and faces arraignment on May 25. If convicted, Witter could be sent to prison for up to four years and eight months.
