SANTA ANA (CBS) — A teacher at a private high school in Irvine was arrested Thursday night for allegedly sending sexually explicit photos and text messages to a female student at the school.

Dominic Witter, 25, was taken into custody when he arrived at a pizza restaurant in Laguna Hills expecting to meet the underage student. He was instead confronted by investigators from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, the Irvine Police Department, the O.C. Child Exploitation Task Force and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The suspect allegedly sent the girl nude photos of himself and asked her to send back some of her own, according to an ICE report.

“We entrust teachers to serve as role models for our children and safeguard their welfare. When that trust is violated, there will be zero tolerance,” said Claude Arnold, special agent in charge for HSI Los Angeles. “Those who exploit their access to young people to gratify their own perverse sexual desires are on notice that there will be serious consequences for those actions.”

The Laguna Niguel resident teaches English and also serves as a coach for the girls track and boys soccer teams at Crean Lutheran High School.

      I want to Bobby 🙂


      Bob, I’ll lick your ass if you call me “GROWAPAIR,” limp d!ck. I can’t even get a job.That’s because that aS$hole lawyer Robert Hale from Hale and Nguyen in Brea couldn’t help me with my case. Now I’m a chickensh!t aS$puck that has a beef with law enforcement and everybody on the internet. I used multiple screen names like [GROW..APAIR], [wg//af], [up//yours], [Mike in San Diego], [Mike in Upland], [1stman] and [kma] so no one can track me down. I challenge people to meet me in front of the Fullerton P.D. station for my protection. I’m such a puS$y dumbf**k with nothing to say I post to myself copying sentences from everyone, especially GROWAPAIR, who knows I’m a ball sniffing loser.

      I’ll use your screen name next, puS$y d!cklips.

      Pay attention to me when I hijack screen names to show I’m a whiny puS$y dumbf**k loser. It makes my ass pucker with joy when people think I’m GROWAPAIR and my daddy’s balls like it when my ass puckers. Tell me how I can sound any more f**king st

    Who do you think you are talking about someone you have never met like that? You know absolutely nothing about him, who he is, what he looks like. If you ever met him in person you would think twice about calling him “out of shape, nappy haired, and a primate,” and you make damn sure that you watch your tongue the next time you have something to say over the internet.

    He’s a nice guy and has a good sense sense of humor, maybe he just messed up and took it a little too far, he isn’t afraid to lovingly discipline students who didn’t do work or fell asleep in class. I know he’s dedicated to his students and is willing to help them succeed, I will miss you Mr. Witter!!! I really hope you can be our teacher again!!! If not, I will miss you 🙁

      “just messed up?” Really? He sent a pic of his wang to a student- thats just sick and he is a criminal.

        I love how people judge other people without knowing them. Its sad to see someone pick on a man that was caught doing something just as stupid as anyone has done. Everyone has sinned and therefore shalt seek thy father in light of their punishment. I will pray now and continue to pray for Coach and pray for people like you as well in hope that you shall notice your mistakes as well as others that are unfortunate enough to get caught. -God Bless

      I doubt this is a legitimate student

  5. Katie says:

    Seriously… you’ve never even met him! Don’t judge before you meet someone. Coach Dom happened to be one of the best teachers I have ever had the privlege of knowing. He was always open in talking to students and helping out for events. Mr. Witter was and still is a great person. People make mistakes. Don’t jusge without meeting him.
    I’m going to continue praying for Coach Dom and for you.

    Primate and nappy hair are quite accurately descript photographically.

    Now, what more, realistically, could anybody expect from one of such distinct, physical traits?

    It appears that most posters on here don’t mind having a predatory, very dark- black male teacher near their own children.
