Glendale P.E. teacher pleaded not guilty Thursday to molestation and luring a minor charges

PHOENIX - A Glendale elementary physical education teacher accused of molestation and luring a minor pleaded not guilty Thursday morning.

John Frank Todorich, 55, allegedly created a Facebook account in May 2012, listing himself as a minor.

According to court documents, Todorich posted pictures of a 16-year-boy who he portrayed as himself.

Court documents say he used his Facebook account to lure a minor into performing sexual acts. The minor's mother discovered the chat messages and notified police.

In 2012, Todorich was accused of inappropriately touching a student while he was employed as an elementary school physical education teacher.
