MILWAUKEE — Reagan High School teacher Kenneth Chu of Milwaukee was charged Friday with four felonies after allegedly sending inappropriate pictures to students on social media.

Chu, 26, was charged with one count of causing a child 13 to 18 years of age to view or listen to sexual activity. He was charged with three counts of exposing a child to harmful material.

Chu, who is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing Jan. 4, is accused of sending inappropriate pictures of himself to female students and alumni on Snapchat.

Chu, who initially was arrested for child enticement, has been with the district for three years.

When Chu was arrested, Milwaukee Public Schools sent a statement saying it is cooperating with Milwaukee Police.

“The person in question has been placed on leave pending a final resolution to the matter,” Milwaukee Public Schools said in a statement.
