FIRST UPDATE: 11:20 a.m. Jan. 12
The Yolo D.A. recently filed criminal charges against former RCHS teacher and varsity football coach Arturo Bustamante, who was on paid leave for several months after a report he “inappropriately touched” a female student at the school.
According to the Yolo County District Attorney’s office, Bustamante is accused of several felony and misdemeanor counts of “lewd and lascivious acts” and “child molestation” involving four students, age about 15-16, in 2010-2011.
The D.A.’s office has requested a warrant, and if successful, arrangements could be made for Bustamante to turn himself in voluntarily for arrest.
“His range of sentence if convicted is probation with up to one year in County jail to 4 years 4 months in prison,” said Jonathan Raven, Chief Deputy District Attorney, in an emailed statement.
The Washington Unified School District reports that Bustamante is now on “compulsory leave of absence pending the outcome of the matter.”
The News-Ledger will follow up with more details as they become available.
