SANTA ANA (CBS) —  A former high school Spanish teacher  in San Juan Capistrano was charged Friday with having sex with one of the school’s 14-year-old students.

Ricardo Aldana, 37, faces seven felony counts of lewd acts on a child, according to Deputy District Attorney Jana Hoffmann.

Aldana was fired from JSerra Catholic High School when he was arrested in December.

Aldana, who also was a boys soccer coach at the school, met the girl at JSerra when she was 13, according to prosecutors.

Prosecutors allege he had sex with the girl in his Dana Point home while the girl’s mother was out of town in September.

In June, when the girl was 14 he massaged her shoulders in an inappropriate way, prosecutors allege. He also is accused of exchanging text messages and talking with the girl on the phone.

Aldana is scheduled to be arraigned Monday. He has been out of custody since posting $100,000 bail.

Aldana could face up to seven years in prison if convicted.

    Sexual relations with a girl less than 18 years old might not be an issue with other countries. But, when you enter the U.S. territory, you better keep your filthy hands off minors for you will go to jail.

      Unless of course you’re a hot female teacher sleeping with your 13 year old male students while cruising around in the back of an SUV, in which case you’re a semi-sincere “My bad” and a few painted sidewalks away from becoming a cult heroine.

    It happens much more than We know. I have a friend that’s a Principal at a High School and He says the Girls are always flirting with way older Guys. He said he may have to retire early so he doesn’t get into trouble or move to a Grade school , but even they have girls who grow up too fast.
    You have 14 year old girls with Tats almost saying they need Love and Sex

      That is so true. We live in a evil world. Then why does the school hire young male teachers? Last year in Tx. the school my daughter attended had the youngest coach. , early twenties. 😮 He was extremly handsom and all the girls were on him like honey. It’s not worth loosing a career over a young girl who is at a very confusing age.

        I don’t think teachers should not be hired based on their age/looks. A lot of younger teachers teach really well and are young enough to be familiar with the modern school system enough to understand what their students go through. In high school, I had a young physics teacher in his late 20s that a number of girls had a crush on, yet he had immense integrity and always kept his professionalism. At the same time, the kids were his friends, yet he was strict when he needed to be. No surprise that he was an amazing teacher and mentor. Teachers should be hired based on a factor of both intelligence/knowledge and character.

        Thats true. Not all young teachers are perverts. It’s just a crazy world we live in. about twenty five years ago, again in Tx. my male cousin, left his home of five siblings, to go live with his math teacher. Yes , math teacher. She coached him well, for they lived together ever since and are now married with three beautiful kids. He went to college and now has his own Co. and they “are together”. He is very respectable and educated. Every case is different. I don’t and cant judge them.

    That doesnt make any sense at all man. 14 year old girls know exactly what they want, and in this case it would appear that she got it!
