Travis Lee Putnam, a former Orange Glen High School teacher who admitted to sexually abusing underage boys, faces sentencing Monday in Vista.

Putnam entered a guilty plea last month, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. He pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in February.

Police arrested him two days before his court appearance during a traffic stop in Oceanside.

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department initially held him on four counts of committing lewd acts with children ages 14 or 15.

According to the Escondido Union High School District, the victims were not district students.

At the time of his arrest, district officials said they placed Putnam on administrative leave.
