Arts teacher on 2 charges after student-sex videos posted
A 37-year-old arts teacher at a school in Nakhon Ratchasima who stabbed himself after videos of him having sex with students went viral has been charged with two offences.
Police said on Wednesday that the teacher was charged with depriving girls aged over 15 years but below 18 of parental care and putting false information into a computer system.
The man had been treated for injuries and discharged from hospital, police said.
The teacher, whose name was not given by police, has been dismissed and is being investigated after videos of him having sex with students were posted on social media on Jan 15. About 10 girls were said to have been sexually exploited by the teacher.
After the scandal broke, the teacher stabbed himself.
The district police chief said investigators were confident they had enough evidence to prosecute the man.
