The sex crime defense attorneys at The Law Offices of Daniel E. Kann have learned that an Associate Principal at Camarillo High School was arrested on sex charges involving a female student and an adult female staffer.
The Ventura County Sheriff's Department says that the alleged molestation incidents took place between November of last year and May of this year. The 41-year-old man was charged with four misdemeanors for child molestation and annoyance (California Penal Code 647.6) and he was also charged with one misdemeanor count of sexual battery against an adult staff member.
In May, school officials received information that the Associate Principal had allegedly been involved in offensive behavior on campus and had inappropriately touched a juvenile and an adult staffer. The Oxnard Union High School District placed the associate principal on paid administrative leave and contacted authorities.
The alleged molestations of the student took place on four different occasions. According to Ventura sheriff's investigators, the incidents were separate and the two alleged victims were unaware that the other had leveled accusations.
The suspect was released from jail on $30,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on August 28.
Under California Penal Code 647.6, any person who annoys or molests any child less than 18 years of age while motivated by an unnatural or abnormal sexual interest in the minor can be punished by a fine up to $5,000 and could face a prison sentence in county jail for up to one year.
