A high school teacher who authorities said posed as a teenage girl and solicited nude photos from more than 100 boys has pleaded not guilty to 60 felony charges, court records show.

Zachary Reeder, 30, of Orange, pleaded not guilty Friday at the Harbor Justice Center in Newport Beach to charges of using a minor for sex acts, distributing pornography to a minor, contacting a child with the intent to commit a lewd act, lewd acts upon a child, lewd acts upon a child under 14, possession and control of child pornography and distributing child pornography, according to prosecutors and court records.

Reeder was a history teacher at Servite High School in Anaheim at the time of the crimes, and previously worked as a history teacher at Arnold O. Beckman High School in Irvine where he also worked as an assistant walk-on baseball coach for four seasons, according to the Orange County district attorney’s office.
