Colorado teacher asked students to send topless photos, police say

A Fruita teacher is facing charges after he was accused of asking students to send him topless photos of themselves.

The Fruita Police Department says 58-year-old public school teacher Randy Majors is facing 3 counts of sexual exploitation of a child and 5 counts of attempted sexual exploitation of a child.

According to an arrest affidavit, a parent told police she was going through her 16-year-old daughter's Facebook account and found a message asking her daughter to send nude pictures of herself and to not tell anyone. Police say they later discovered several conversations with other students ranging from 15 to 17 years old.

Majors could not be located for comment and court records did not indicate he has an attorney.
