Officials at the Mystic Valley Regional Charter School in Malden, Massachusetts have placed teacher Kevin Hogan on paid leave as they investigate his gay porn past.

Hogan was the subject of a Fox 25 News Undercover investigation. With cameras rolling, a reporter approached the English teacher and crew coach with evidence that he starred in recent gay porn films under the screen name of Hytch Cawke. Hogan appeared in three films released last year, including Fetish World and Just Gone Gay 8, according to the report.

“Does the school know that you're a porn star?” undercover reporter Mike Beaudet asked Hogan as he approached his car.

“I don't know what you're talking about,” Hogan replied.

“Do your students know that you've been in these movies? This is you,” Beaudet insisted as he pointed to a flier. “You know what I'm walking about.”

“Do you really think it's appropriate to be working with kids?”

“I don't know what you're talking about. Happy Thanksgiving,” Hogan replied.

School officials suggested in a statement that Hogan's gay porn past was a threat to students: “We value the health and safety of our students.”

A majority of the comments on the story ran mostly against the television station's reporting.

“Shame on Fox for this attempt at ruining a man's career,” wrote one commenter.

“Why ruin a perfectly good teacher's life when they haven't done anything illegal and when we desperately need good teachers?” wrote another.
