Saddleback High Special-Ed Assistant Pleads Guilty to Child Abuse
Yesterday, Saddleback High special-ed assistant Alonso Manuel Gonzalez plead guilty to child abuse and endangerment in a case that has dragged on since November yet has provoked no public or parental notification from Santa Ana Unified High School District officials. Prosecutors knocked down Gonzalez's original charge of a felony for a lewd act with a dependent adult to the misdemeanor crime. As part of the plea bargain, Gonzalez will suffer four years of formal probation, serve 240 hours of community service, pay restitution and--lucky bastard--spend one day in jail. May the world know Gonzalez is a SICK pervert for preying on a special-ed student--and that SAUSD officials care so much about children that they never told Saddleback parents about Gonzalez's arrest and probably never will. Oh, and they ignored the warnings of parents. School year ain't over yet, people: call Saddleback High principal Robert Laxton (wait a minute...did the pedo-apologist Tracey Brennan quit or get fired?) at (714) 513-2900 and tell him what the fuck.
