A high school junior varsity volleyball coach and campus aid has been arrested on accusations of having sex with a 15-year-old student and inappropriately touching another. Esteban E. Torres High School in East L.A has since placed Jonathan Adam Roldan, 23, on unpaid leave though some board members are pushing for his dismissal before the trial.

Roldan was arrested following allegations made by a 15-year-old girl of inappropriate behavior with a student. The school then notified the police who are conducting an investigation through their special victims unit. After the investigation began, police have since identified another victim of the same age.

The L.A. Unified School District sent a letter home with students, informing them of Roldan’s arrest and charges and said that a crisis counselor will be on hand for students as the investigation continues. Anyone with information on the case is urged to contact authorities. For more details on this story, visit the LA Times website here.
