California teacher arrested for sending lewd messages to minor

A California high school teacher and LGBTQ+ club moderator was arrested Wednesday for sending lewd messages to a child.

Roger Kavigan, a social science teacher at Foothill High School in Santa Ana, allegedly posed as a minor to carry out his perverted scheme. Orange County Sheriff’s Office said.

Kavigan was arrested five days after police were shown a TikTok video of a 55-year-old teacher exchanging inappropriate text messages with a child by a “male subject,” police said.
