PHOENIX — A $50,000 bond has been set for a former Brophy College Preparatory teacher accused of sexually abusing several students in past years.

Daniel Whitehead was arraigned Monday after being arrested Saturday.

He was fired from the all-male private Catholic school in central Phoenix late last year after two ex-Brophy students who now are adults accused Whitehead of inappropriate sexual advances.

The men say the incidents allegedly occurred in the 1980s when they were teenagers.

The 71-year-old Whitehead had been a lay faculty member since 1967 and most recently taught math.

Police say Whitehead is being held on suspicion of sexual assault, attempted sexual abuse, furnishing harmful items to a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Authorities say Whitehead has yet to hire a lawyer for his case.
