LA School Scandal: 2nd Teacher Charged, Fired by Board


Miramonte Elementary Has History of Student Sex Abuse

The troubled elementary school in Los Angeles' Huntington Park neighborhood has already seen allegations of child sexual assault in the past decade.

Teacher's aide Ricardo Guevara is currently serving out a 15-year sentence after he was found guilty of fondling three kindergarten girls in 2003 while working at the school, according to ABC News affiliate KABC.

Los Angeles Unified School District was ordered in 2008 to pay Guevara's victims a $1.6 million settlement.

Attorney Keith Davidson, who is representing one of the alleged victims of Berndt, also worked on the case against Guevara.

"You would think that after this prior allegation Miramonte would be the safest school in the country," Davidson told KABC.
