A lovestruck High School Band teacher is behind bars for stalking one of his students.  Officer James Holmes with Phoenix Police says 36-year-old Michael Sporrer sent hundreds of inappropriate text messages to his 15-year-old student.  The teen told police Sporrer followed her every move showing up at the movies or

shopping where she and her friends were hanging out.  Sporrer would also text her friends to find out where she was.  The teen says Sporrer stepped up his unwanted advances and touched her inappropriately.  Those touches were not sexual in nature, but the girl started to fear for her safety.  Sporrer confessed to police he was “in love” with the girl and admitted to sending her hundreds of text messages.  Sporrer has been arrested for stalking and aggravated assault for the unwanted touching of a juvenile.
