A 38-year-old man is due in court today to face charges that he stole his ex-boyfriend’s identity, a Pasadena high school teacher, and sent explicit pictures to colleagues and students, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced. 

Deputy District Attorney Christine Kee said David Galvan (dob 7/4/76) is facing one felony count each of false personation and identity theft. 

Case GA094015 also charges Galvan with one misdemeanor count of Internet/electronic impersonation and three misdemeanor counts of obscene matter. 

Arraignment is scheduled today in Department D of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Pasadena Branch. 

On July 10, the defendant sent naked pictures of his ex-boyfriend from the victim’s Muir High School work email, the prosecutor said. The explicit photos were sent to teachers, students and others in the ex-boyfriend’s contact list, the prosecutor added. 

If convicted as charged, Galvan faces a possible maximum penalty of six years and two months in state prison to be served in county jail. 

The case was investigated by the Pasadena Police Department.
