Friday, the Chandler teacher went before a judge for his arraignment.

Investigators said the evidence they’ve found so far, was enough to arrest him on 15 counts of Sex Abuse of a Child, and one count of Violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act.

After reading evidence of the case, the judge said that Hitchcock’s bond will be kept at $750,000.

“We will be continuing our investigation. Going over evidence,” Whitney said.

The OSBI told News 9 the abuse was ongoing.

Court documents have yet to be filed, but officials do confirm that future arrests are a possibility in this case.

Investigators are urging anyone with information to call the OSBI tip line at 800-522-8017.
