El Monte School District Teachers Facing Sex Crime Charges?

  • Published: June 6, 2013

An Arroyo High School teacher, whose name was not released, was placed on leave April 18 by the El Monte Union High School District for allegedly having an inappropriate contact with a student.

He was a long time teacher who was not allowed back on the school premises let alone in a classroom until the investigation was complete. Parents and the public were not notified solely because the investigation was pending and it had not been determined whether the allegations had any truth.

The District Attorney’s office announced that no files would be charged against this man due to insufficient evidence unlike Mountain View High School music teacher Abel Acosta, another El Monte district teacher, who is facing 17 felony charges, including unlawful sex with a minor, lewd acts on a minor, oral copulation of a minor and sexual penetration by a foreign object in which he denied all 17 counts.

His allegations include a 14 year old girl and his preliminary hearing, where all witnesses and evidence will be presented, is scheduled for June 20th inPomona court. During the preliminary hearing the judge will determine to see whether the evidence is sufficient enough for Acosta to stand trial.
