Jeff Huelster, Cortez High School Teacher/Head Football Coach, Accused of Crimes Involving His Penis and a Kid on the Internet

Jeff Huelster, a teacher at Cortez High School -- and the school's head football coach -- is accused of sex crimes against children, including live-streaming video of his penis over the Internet to a person he thought was a minor.

In classic To Catch a Predator style, Huelster met the minor on an "Internet chat site," and things got sexual, according to court documents obtained by New Times.

Huelster, 44, had three different conversations with the youngster online, which included requests for sex acts, including oral sex and intercourse, according to the documents.

On the first chat, Huelster was live-streaming his penis across the Internet to the kid "while he solicited the minor for sexual acts," the court documents state.

According to the documents, Huelster only did this after he knew the person he was live-streaming his penis to was under age 18.

Huelster also directed the kid to the "teen category" of a porn site, so they could watch a video at the same time, according to the docs.

Phoenix police detectives served a search warrant at Huelster's place Tuesday morning, and a warrant also was served at the high school to recover "forensic evidence" that was Huelster's personal property, according to Phoenix police.

In an interview, Huelster admitted to police that he thought he was flashing his penis to a kid on the Internet using a webcam, according to the court documents.

Huelster was booked into jail on one count of aggravated sexual luring of a minor, and two counts of luring a minor for sexual exploitation.

According to Phoenix police, Huelster has been at Cortez for three years.
