Bustamante arrested on molestation charges


Arturo Bustamante, a teacher and football coach on the River City High School campus, turned himself in to the West Sacramento Police Department today for arrest, in the company of his attorney. He was booked into jail.

Bustamante, 42, was arrested for “three counts of ‘felony lewd or lascivious conduct on a child 14 or 15 years old,’ and six counts of misdemeanor ‘annoying and/or molesting a child under 18 years of age,'” according to a press statement from the West Sacramento Police Department.

He had been on paid leave from his duties after a female student alleged he had “inappropriately touched” her earlier this year.
