NEW IPSWICH - A school board in Maine is calling for a high school principal to be fired after allegations he was trying to lure female students for sex.
Now there are more similar accusations from when the man was a high school teacher in New Hampshire.
Don Reiter taught at Mascenic High School in the late '90s and early 2000s, before working as the principal at the high school in Waterville, Maine.
Reiter is being accused of asking a female student to have sex with him in August and now more people are speaking out about his behavior as an educator.
"I do recall like people saying there was some stuff going on, and he would go out with student," said one former student who asked not to be identified.
According to the Portland Press Herald, the Waterville School board was recently told about claims of inappropriate behavior.
One claim was that Reiter asked if a female student could keep a secret. He apparently told her that each year he chooses a girl to have sex with him and that no one ever turns him down.
These accusations have encouraged others to come forward.
Former students in New Ipswich, many who asked not to be identified remember questionable activity.
"I always thought he was a little bit inappropriate with girls and stuff like that and there was a lot of flirtatious things going on," said the former student.
Parents in New Ipswich are now questioning the safety of their students.
"In every school system there are issues but there should never be issues like this," said a concerned parent.
Reiter's lawyer is saying the accusations are completely false. He has been placed on paid leave since September.
The investigation is currently in the hands of Waterville, Maine police.
If you have any information that could help the case, police are asking you to contact Det. Sgt. Bonney at 207-680-4700.
