He looks creepy enough...

Riverton teacher is charged with 11 new sex-abuse counts

Eleven additional charges of aggravated sexual abuse of a child were filed Friday against an award-winning teacher at Rosamond Elementary School.

Frank Laine Hall, 36, now faces a total of 14 counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, all first-degree felonies. The new charges represent six additional victims, bringing the total to nine.

Originally, Hall was accused of putting his hand down the pants of three female students in his first-grade classroom, 12195 S. 1975 West, in Riverton. All of the approximately 20 students in his class are 6 or 7 years old.

The amended charges do not give details about the six additional victims, including whether they were his students or if the abuse occurred in his classroom.

However, 10 of the additional charges reflect allegations between July 1, 2006, and March 9, 2007, the day Hall was removed from the classroom, according to court documents.
