California Substitute Teacher Arrested for ALLEGEDLY Molesting Students IN Class!
A Santa Ana substitute teacher has been arrested after he was accused of molesting young girls in his classroom.
Santa Ana police have arrested 69-year-old Peter Morales after four young girls reported that he had inappropriate contact with them.
The students are between the ages of eight and nine years old and told school officials that Morales touched them inappropriately. Each victim was molested individually and at different times throughout the day.
The report from the girls didn't go unheard leading to a swift decision to take Morales into custody.
According to reports, Morales worked as a teacher for the Santa Ana Unified School District for 18 years and is now employed as a substitute teacher.
Morales was booked for Child Molestation and subsequently posted bail that was set at $100,000.00.
This investigation is ongoing and the authorities fear there may be more victims who haven't come forward.
Santa Ana Police Department Detectives are asking for anyone with information to contact Detective Anthony Pacheco at 714-245-8352, Apacheco@santa-ana.org or Orange County Crime Stoppers at 1-855-TIP-OCCS.
