Arroyo High School Teacher Accused of Inappropriate Contact With Students

An Arroyo School teacher was arrested in April 2017 for allegedly having inappropriate contact with several students. Daniel Rios, 51, was arrested on April 12th for allegedly inappropriate contact with several students. He remains in custody at Men’s Central Jail. His bail is set at $105,000.

El Monte detectives started the investigation in late December 2016. On March 24, 2017, the District Attorney’s Office filed one count of lewd act on a minor and four counts of annoying a child against Rios. According to the police, these acts most likely took place on November 1, 2016.

The police issued an arrest warrant for Rios and later arrested him at his home. Rios was booked at El Monte Jail and later transferred to a county jail facility. He is scheduled for an arraignment on May 1st at Pomona Superior Court.

Legal Help for Sexually Abused Children

Placing your child in the care of another individual or institution, such as a school, carries with it a burden of care and responsibility. If you suspect that your child was sexually abused or molested while at school or at day care, you need to take immediate action. You have a right to seek compensation for the costs of your child’s damages as a result of the abuse or negligence.

Often, we are led to believe that the criminal process will achieve justice in a child abuse case. However, the criminal proceedings are only designed to punish the perpetrator of abuse. The criminal process has no bearing on schools or the organizations that knew or should have known they had a dangerous employee working for them, but yet failed to properly prevent the employee from harming the children.

Michael Carrillo, and his father Luis Carrillo, have handled many child sexual abuse cases, especially against negligent school districts. This particular sexual abuse case at Arroyo High School comes on the heels of several high profile cases within the El Monte Union High School District.
