California Teacher Accused of Molesting Student During Class

Police arrested a high school teacher from Escondido, Calif., Friday after a student reported that he had repeatedly molested her several years ago while in class.

The 19-year-old girl reported that she began a relationship with her 35-year-old teacher, Mario Humerez, while attending Valley High School in September 2007 when she was 16 years old, and it lasted for approximately 16 months, Fox 5 San Diego reports.

She told police Humerez molested her on two separate occasions. She said he molested her once in 2008 with his hand in a classroom while other students watched a movie. The second molestation took place in early 2009 and involved oral copulation.

Police arrested Humerez as he was on his way to meet with the victim.
