A former English teacher whose booking photo from early last year had him looking like a Die Hard villain pleaded guilty today under a plea deal to inappropriately
kissing and hugging a 14-year-old female student.
Evans, 33, of Fullerton, was promptly sentenced to a year in Orange County jail, three
years of formal probation and mandatory lifetime registration as a sex
Between December 2011 and January 2012, Evans groomed the
girl for a relationship beyond their classes at El Rancho Charter School in Anaheim Hills by sending her texts and emails and
online games via his cell phone. He met her at
least three times at another student's
home, and on two of those visits they kissed and
embraced one another.
The 14-year-old's mother learned of the relationship and reported the crime to the
school, which in turn contacted the Anaheim Police Department. Evans was arrested in Fullerton in February 2011.
He cut a plea deal that had him copping today to two felony
counts of lewd and lascivious acts upon a child between the ages of 14
