SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO (CBS) — A 37-year-old high school Spanish teacher in San Juan Capistrano has been arrested for having sex with one of his students, according to officials.

Orange County sheriff’s deputies arrested Ricardo Aldana of Dana Point about 11:30 p.m., Wednesday, near his home, Jim Amormino of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said.

Aldana posted bail, Amormino said.

Aldana, a teacher at JSerra Catholic High School, was booked on suspicion of lewd and lascivious acts and child molestation, Amormino said.

The alleged victim told her mother she and the teacher had sex in his home in September. The girl’s mother called sheriff’s deputies, Amormino said.

Investigators are concerned there may be more alleged victims because Aldana , who taught Spanish at the school for seven years, is also the junior varsity girls volleyball coach, Amormino said.

Aldana also is a coach/mentor for the T Street volleyball team in Irvine an assistant coach on the high school’s boys soccer team, Amormino said.

The alleged victim did not play on the volleyball teams, Amormino said.

Aldana was fired when school officials were notified of his arrest, according to a statement.

“We are outraged and sickened by these disturbing allegations and are cooperating fully with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department,” the statement from JSerra read. “We strongly encourage anybody in the JSerra community with information that might aid the investigation to contact the sheriff’s department immediately … JSerra does not tolerate inappropriate conduct between faculty/staff and minors, and we will continue to forcefully enforce our policy.”

  2. english says:

    so im gonna run to mommy everytime i have sex, stupid teens grow up!

  3. Fred says:

    Fired, because a teen stated he had sex with her.

    Guilty until proven innocent.

    So if you hate your teacher just say you had sex with them. Done.

      That is what I am thinking… (I DO NOT CONDONE SEX W/STUDENTS) But this could be a witch hunt… just sayin’. Why did the kid not say anything about this when it happened in Sept? Aren’t mid-terms going on? Why was the kid AT HIS HOUSE???? I just have to wonder about this… I never went to a teachers house in school.

  4. Tom says:

    Why do they do that? They willingly have sex with their teachers then tell an adult to get him/her in trouble. I wish a good looking teacher would’ve taken me to her home, when I was in school. >:I

    1. JCINHB says:

      I agree, I had a totally hot teacher that I still wish I could date. But if I ever had the chance to sleep with her, I would have not told my parents.
      This story sounds fishy to me.

  5. Charlie says:

    In situations like this, often the Sheriff’s Department will tell the administration of the school more details about the case than they will tell the public. For all we know, the Sheriff’s Office could have shared some pretty damning evidence with the JSerra administration. Also, according to another article in the OC Weekly, the mother of the accusing student alleges that she told the JSerra administration earlier this year that she had suspicions about Aldana, saying that he was either “crossing the line” or a “perpetrator.” According to the mother, JSerra initially came to the conclusion that the mother’s suspicions were unfounded. Perhaps, once confronted with his arrest, they made a bit of a reversal.

    California schools teach gay history and pass out condoms but if a teacher sleeps with a 16 year old using the very condoms the school gave her, they are ‘outraged and sickened by these disturbing allegations’. Give it a break already. It’s California. Everyone is sleeping around. At least it was a man sleeping with a grown woman and not a gay coach hugging little boys in the shower.

      Dear Digitil somehow you`re going to have to get past those old memories of your High School Days. Especially the ones involving your Coach and You in the Showers. You just can`t go on carrying all this Shame and Guilt around like a Box of Bricks. Forgive yourself, You were young and impressionable and just because you were aroused at the time does not make you Gay.

    I knew of a drummer in a band whose band mate’s 15 year old daughter had the hots for. She actively pursued him for months and he fought her off. In a moment of weakness, he allowed her to perform oral sex on him whereupon she proceeded to start telling people. He was arrested and found guilty and is now required to register as a sex offender in the state of Texas for the next 20 years.

    What’s news? How many times I have to reinstates that mexIcans are sick molester. Almost all molestation crime are conducted by them, almost no exclusion, that’s is. Schools, in general, should redo their precautionary measure to see if they should better off hiring other ethnicity. Maybe Sudan is even way better. If schools want to create job still, ok, have them to run garbage, landscaping or janitor, but not teaching or coaching. Come on…

    1. JCINHB says:

      Bro.. your lack of skill with the English language makes you no better than the illegals you complain about. All I am understanding about your comment is that all Mexican’s are molesters and should be gardeners…and people from Sudan would make better teachers.

  9. Kevin says:

    Guilty as charged. No trial, no nothing. What happened to all these Liberals that say they are going to protect our rights?

    If he did it, prosecute him, get a guilty verdict, and throw him in jail. No problems.

    Until then, let’s not pronounce him guilty.
