    Man accused of lewd acts with girls being investigated

    Pictures found on the computer of a piano teacher arrested on suspicion of lewd acts with a child suggest there may be more potential victims, authorities said. Two girls have been identified, but law enforcement officials are continuing to inspect a computer and other items that were seized from 58-year-old John Mordecai Scott, who taught children in two South Orange County music shops, said Lt. Jeff Hallock of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. The music teacher is suspected of taking lewd photos of the two girls, both of whom were younger than 14 years old, he said.

    On Monday, authorities asked for the public’s help, saying Scott had contact with several minors through his work. Investigators found several “inappropriate” pictures of the two girls on his computer, Hallock said. They also found pictures of unidentified children, he said.
