PHOENIX — A 73-year-old former math teacher at an all-boys prep school in
Phoenix has been sentenced to a year in prison and seven years of probation
after pleading guilty in in a sex case involving inappropriate relationships
with students in the1980s.
A Maricopa County Superior Court judge sentenced Dan Whitehead on Monday.
He pleaded guilty last year to one count of sexual abuse and no contest to
another count of sex abuse and one count of furnishing obscene or harmful items
Whitehead was fired in November 2011 after two former Brophy College
Preparatory School students claimed he molested them in the 1980s. The students
didn’t want police contacted.
Phoenix police investigated anyway and found that Whitehead allegedly invited
students home, gave them alcohol and then tried to fondle them.
