Another LAUSD Lawsuit Accuses Teacher Of Molestation

Posted: Updated:
Los Angeles, CA -

(FOX 11 / CNS) Three former students of a teacher at El Sereno Elementary School are suing the Los Angeles Unified School District, charging that the teacher molested them.

The district confirmed it moved to fire teacher Armando Gonzalez in 2012 over alleged misconduct, the Los Angeles Times reported. But details about the allegations were not immediately available Wednesday, when the suit was filed, district spokesman Sean Rossall told the newspaper.

The litigation involves three of Gonzalez's former students who did not report the alleged wrongdoing until recently, The Times reported.    The girls "discovered that the psychological injury, illness and suffering" they subsequently experienced were "caused by the childhood sexual harassment, molestation and abuse," according to the suit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

The district had warning, dating to 2007, of Gonzalez's unfitness to teach based on episodes of touching, fondling and kissing girls on the lips, the suit charges. The period of abuse recounted in the lawsuit spans 2008 through 2010, The Times reported.

The lawsuit also alleges that there are up to 15 victims, a claim that attorney Luis Carrillo Told The Times is based on information provided to one of his clients by a school district employee.

L.A. Unified said it is looking into the matter.
