Max term for teacher’s aide convicted of sexual assaults of students with disabilities From Bail Bondsman In Los Angeles
A Los Angeles Superior Court judge Thursday imposed the maximum possible sentence on a former high school teacher’s aide convicted of sexually abusing two special education students, the District Attorney’s Office announced.
Deputy District Attorney Rachel Moser Greene of the Sex Crimes Division said 45-year-old Oscar Enrique Santos of La Puente was sentenced to 18 years in state prison. Judge Sam Ohta indicated the prison term may not be served in county jail.
Jurors convicted Santos on Nov. 10, 2011, of 21 felony counts including oral copulation of an incompetent person, oral copulation of a person under 18 and sexual battery by restraint.
The charges involve two girls with developmental disabilities – one of whom is confined to a wheelchair – who were assaulted between 2005 and 2007 when Santos was a teacher’s aide at Garfield High School in East Los Angeles.
At the time, the defendant was responsible for assisting a male student who is gravely disabled. The assaults took place on campus when the girls, then ages 16 and 17, were between classes.
Santos attacked the young women on multiple occasions in an on-campus elevator, keeping the elevator moving up and down between floors while he carried out the assaults, the prosecutor said.
Evidence presented at trial to establish Santos’ pattern of conduct revealed that the defendant had a history of similar complaints as testified to by a third, uncharged victim who Santos unsuccessfully attempted to lure into the elevator.
The case was investigated by the Special Victims Bureau of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
