Christopher Bacca enters court for a hearing on charges of sexual battery of a minor.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

A supplemental police report obtained Wednesday from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office provides further insight into the arrest of a former Duval County elementary school teacher accused of eight counts of sexual abuse on a boy younger than 12.

Christopher Bacca, who was fired from his job as a teacher at Wendy Hill Elementary School after his arrest, is facing four counts of capital sexual battery and four counts of lewd and lascivious molestation.

The report says Bacca has "done a lot of things with the children over the past year or so, including overnight visits and going on trips. He had been "having the children tell their mothers lies," according to the report.

The report says Bacca was also telling one child's mother that there was "work due for school over the summer, which is not true." Bacca "told the mother he was taking the children to the Keys on a trip. He kept them at his apartment the whole time," the report reads.

Investigators have said they do not believe there are any more victims.

Bacca's next court appearance is scheduled for Sept. 13. He remains in jail without bail.
