FARIBAULT, Minn. (AP) A former teacher at a Faribault prep school has appeared in a Minnesota court, more than four months after he was charged with sexual misconduct involving students.

Former Shattuck-St. Mary's drama teacher Lynn Seibel appeared Tuesday in Rice County. Seibel faces 17 felony counts, including second-degree criminal sexual conduct and using a minor in a sexual performance.

Bail was set at $200,000 with no conditions or $100,000 with conditions.

The incidents allegedly happened from 1996 through 2003, and involved male students ages 15 to 18.

Seibel, now 71, was charged in Minnesota in October. He was being held in Los Angeles on an unrelated charge, but a prosecutor in Los Angeles County says that charge was dropped so the Rice County case could be prosecuted.
