COMPTON, Calif. (AP) – Los Angeles County prosecutors have charged a high school teacher’s aide with committing lewd acts on a child.
The felony complaint filed Wednesday against 40-year-old Alain Salas alleges three counts of lewd acts and one count of contacting a minor for a sexual offense.
He’s the fourth employee of the Los Angeles Unified School District arrested in recent weeks on child sex-related allegations.
The FBI has said the victim of the alleged crimes is a 15-year-old student.
Salas, who worked at John C. Fremont Senior High, is expected to appear for arraignment Wednesday in Compton Superior Court.
Los Angeles Unified is the nation’s second-largest school district, with more than 640,000 K-12 students and more than 100,000 employees.
