LA elementary teacher charged with sexually molesting students

A fourth-grade Los Angeles-area elementary teacher is facing numerous felony and misdemeanor charges for allegedly sexually abusing 20 students. Upon learning of the allegations, the school district removed the teacher from the classroom.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – A 57-year-old elementary teacher has been arrested and charged with 15 felonies for allegedly sexually abusing 20 students and one adult.

Police said Robert Pimentel was a teacher at the George De La Torre Jr. Elementary School in the Wilimington section of Los Angeles. In addition to the felony charges, police expect to file misdemeanor charges in relation to other incidents.

A fourth-grade teacher, Pimentel stopped teaching March, last year, when the investigation began. Pimentel began teaching in the district in 1974 and had more than 35 years of teaching experience.

The investigation was instituted after students reported the alleged abuse to their parents. School officials, upon learning of the allegations, removed the teacher from his position. A school district spokesperson said the proper state authorities were alerted to the situation.

Parents of the children involved in the case, were notified by letter and by phone that Pimentel had been arrested.
