PHOENIX - A former math teacher at Brophy College Preparatory School in Phoenix has entered a not guilty plea to child molestation charges.
A Maricopa County Superior Court spokesman says 71-year-old Dan Whitehead entered the plea on Thursday.
Whitehead was fired in November after two former students said he molested them in the 1980s. The students did not want police contacted.
Phoenix police investigated anyway and said they were able to find several adult males who said they were victims or witnesses to molestations by Whitehead in the 1980s. Police said Whitehead would invite students home, ply them with alcohol and then fondle or try to fondle the boys.
He was arrested September 8 on a felony sexual assault charge, 2 felony counts of attempted sexual abuse and 6 other charges.
