A 45-year-old substitute teacher has been arrested on suspicion of sending sexually explicit text messages and engaging in sexual conversations with a 17-year-old San Mateo High School student, a deputy district attorney said today. John Jacobsen was arrested Monday and charged in San Mateo County Superior Court with distribution or exhibition of lewd material to a minor, and annoying or molesting a child under 18, Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said. Jacobsen is suspected of developing a relationship with the 17-year-old girl that consisted of hourlong phone-sex calls, hundreds of sexually explicit text messages and an in-person meeting in Foster City in which they had a lengthy sexual discussion, Wagstaffe said. After the girl reported the activities, Jacobsen was taken into custody and his cell phone was seized as evidence. He pleaded not guilty to the charges on Tuesday and will return to court on Oct. 13 for a preliminary hearing. Jacobsen posted $30,000 bail and was released from jail at about 11:20 p.m. Tuesday, Wagstaffe said.
