READ: UPDATE: Ex-Nashua teacher accused of soliciting students on Grindr pleads not guilty

Bruce Lanctot, a former teacher at Nashua High School South, sent nude photos of himself to students via Grindr, police said. Victims also reported that Lanctot had asked them to meet up for sex.

Lanctot had plead not guilty and waived his arraignment on Sept. 16. However, on Sept. 20 the court found Lanctot guilty of falsifying physical evidence.

The indictment said that Lancoct believed that an investigation was about to be instituted, so he concealed the location of his cell phone and erased the phone's contents knowing that the Nashua Police Department intended to seize it for evidence.

Falsifying physical evidence is a class B felony, which Lanctot can face three-and-a-half to seven years in jail for.
