Lilly allegedly talked four girls into sexting with him when he taught at Morton High School in Hammond.

Court records unsealed Wednesday say a school official caught him sitting with a female student between his leg in November. A mother also reported she believed her daughter was sexually active with the 27-year-old Lilly.

Investigators allegedly found nude photos of at least four underage students on Lilly's computer.
