Lake Forest Piano Teacher Arrested on Suspicion of Committing Lewd Acts on Children

On Sunday August 10, the Orange County Sheriff's Department announced that they arrested a Lake Forest piano teacher after investigating the man for lewd acts on a child. The suspect, John Mordecai Scott, taught piano lessons from his home and is suspected of taking and showing lewd photographs of at least two elementary school-age girls.

A department official said that the photos appear to show the girls unclothed and in compromising positions. The Sheriff's Department believes that there may be more victims, based on evidence obtained by investigators.

Following the department's investigation, Scott was arrested on suspicion of lewd and lascivious conduct with a child. He was booked into county jail and was initially being held on $500,000 bail. However, after the second victim stepped forward, his bail was expected to be raised to $1 million.

In addition to teaching piano from his residence, Scott taught at OC Music in Rancho Santa Margarita and at Coast Band Music in Mission Viejo. Scott is expected to make his first court appearance on Tuesday.

Investigators are urging additional victims or anyone with information regarding the case to contact the Sheriff's Department at (714) 647-7000 or (714) 647-7418.
