Hong Thai Luong, Former Tutor and Choir Teacher, Convicted of Molesting Girls, Ages 8-10
A jury today convicted Hong Thai Luong, the former choir teacher at St. Callistus School in Garden Grove, of molesting four girls, ages 8 through 10.
Only one girl attended the Catholic school, while the other three were enrolled at the now-closed Paramount Learning Center, which was also in Garden Grove, where the 56-year-old worked as a tutor.
Luong French-kissed one of the pre-teen girls, and he put his hands down the pants of the Paramount enrollees.
The five-man, seven-woman jury found Luong guilty of four counts of lewd acts on children, and he faces up to 14 years in state prison at his scheduled April 27 sentencing.
