A former Texas high school teacher and church leader has been jailed for ten years after he confessed to hosting parties where he encouraged up to 12 teenage boys to get naked and perform sexual acts on each other.
Jared Anderson, 29, a married father of two – including a toddler son – admitted to hosting multiple parties at his home in 2016 and was slapped with numerous charges including sexual assault of a child.
Anderson ended up pleading guilty to four counts of sexual performance by a child and two counts of indecency with a child by exposure as part of a plea agreement about a month ago. ￼
Authorities said Anderson, who taught English at Judson High School, hosted parties at his home on several occasions and invited male students over to perform lewd acts on each other.
The age range of those attending the ‘parties’ would be from 15 to 18.
Anderson, who had been named ‘teacher of the year’ was only exposed after two of the victims contacted authorities and informed them of his antics.

The boys were instructed to ‘crawl around naked and touch each other’ and ‘place their genitals on another boy’s face’.
He would also force the teens to wrestle one another and hug him while he was naked.
At one of the final parties before Anderson was arrested, police found a post-it note on the door that read: ‘The last one to get naked has to get the first dare.’
On another occasion, Anderson challenged a 17-year-old to see who could be the most ‘obscene’, which involved them sending pictures ‘of their genitals to each other’.
Two of the victims ended up reporting the incident to Anderson’s Mormon church and the San Antonio Police Department in March 2016.￼
Six victims, all between the ages of 15 and 18, were then identified by the authorities.

After being caught, Anderson then sent texts and left voicemails on cellphones of the boys’ parents, which were then also used as evidence against him.
A search warrant was also executed at Anderson’s house to look for any visual or photographic evidence.
