WEST PALM BEACH In their eyes, he was a hero.

And for at least one, second best after God.

But on Saturday, Chad Stoffel, a former math and music teacher at Summit Christian School, fell from grace.

The 29-year-old was arrested after police say he confessed to having sex with a 16-year-old Wellington Christian School student, a 16-year-old Summit Christian School student and molesting two children in Broward County.

Despite the confession, for now Stoffel is only facing four counts of unlawful sexual activity and four counts of battery of a child for the encounters he had with the Wellington Christian student.

Detectives and police in Broward County are investigating the other claims. State records show it is his first arrest.
