    San Jose police arrested Reghitto at Leland High on suspicion of having unlawful sexual content with a minor -- a student -- in September. That report came to police on Wednesday, the day before Reghitto's arrest.

    NBC Bay Area, which reported the story first, tried to reach Reghitto at home and by phone with no success. On Thursday, Reghitto declined the opportunity for a jailhouse interview.

    At least one parent told NBC Bay Area that both she and her daughter liked Reghitto and had no problem with him.

     A retired principal will be taking Reghitto's place for now, according to the San Jose Unified School District.
