WILMINGTON, Calif. (KTLA) — A former elementary school teacher with the Los Angeles Unified School District has been arrested in a sexual abuse case involving at least 20 children and one adult.
Robert Pimentel, 57, who taught at George de La Torre Jr. Elementary School in Wilmington, was taken into custody on Wednesday by LAPD detectives.
Police launched an investigation last March after several fourth grade girls said they had been inappropriately touched.
Some of the children told their parents they had been abused, and the parents then altered the LAPD’s Harbor Division.
