POTTSVILLE, Pa. (WNEP) -- A high school music teacher is behind bars after admitting to having sex with a 13-year-old boy.

Police arrested Dale Schimpf, 71, of Frackville, at Nativity BVM High School in Pottsville where Schimpf taught music and led the school band.

Tamaqua police say Schimpf forced the boy to give him oral sex and have intercourse with him. Officers say Schimpf admitted to having a relationship with the boy but thought the boy was 30, not 13.

Police say Schimpf met the boy through an online dating app. Officers say he sent the boy naked pictures and told him he liked him because he was "cute and younger."

On Friday night, officers say Schimpf took the boy out for a date and later brought the boy back to his house where the alleged sexual misconduct took place.

Officers say the boy told his mom, and she reported it to police Saturday, which led to Schimpf's arrest Monday afternoon.

Schimpf was held in the Schuylkill County jail on $100,000 bail. He is also suspended from his job without pay.
