A Concord man has been charged with indecent liberties with a child Friday after soliciting nude photos from at least seven victims under the age of 18, according to Cabarrus County Sheriffs Office.
Michael Osborne, 40, was arrested after detectives said he allegedly posed as a 14-year-old girl on Facebook in order to get nude photos of teenage boys.
Victims have been identified in Cabarrus and Cumberland Counties, as well as in Illinois, according to officials.
Osborne was a grounds maintenance worker for Cabarrus County School, detectives said, and he also coached a number of middle school athletic teams throughout the county.
Osborne was suspended by the school system prior to his arrest and the sheriffs office is working with school officials to find all potential victims, deputies said.
Osborne is being held under a $150,000 secured bond. Officials ask anyone with information about this case to contact Detective Brian Schmitt: 704-920-3136.
