A Grand Forks educator accused of trying to lure a 12-year-old girl from his former school in Edmore over the Internet faces more charges.
Authorities allege that their investigation into Jeremy Thompson has identified eight more victims. Thompson's attorney did not immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment.
Court documents show Thompson now faces seven counts of luring minors by computer, two counts of contributing to the deprivation of a minor and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
At the time of his arrest, Thompson was working as a paraprofessional and as a coach in Grand Forks schools. He has since been fired.
