Math teacher Melissa Nicole Lindgren pleaded not guilty at her arraignment last week to sexually assaulting three male students at Nicholas Junior High School in Fullerton.
But if the La Mirada 28-year-old is ultimately found guilty and must register as a sex offender, she can get tips on how to deal with the stigma from her grandfather, a registered sex offender himself.
According to the California registered sex offender database at MegansLaw.ca.gov, Norcia must register as a sex offender for life due to a conviction for lewd or lascivious acts with a child under age 14.
His granddaughter next has a pretrial hearing scheduled June 13 at North Justice Center in Fullerton. She is accused of having sexually assaulted and sent sexual messages to three male students ages of 13 and 15, with the incidents having allegedly happened at school or in a car. She could go away to state prison for 16 years and four months with a conviction.
She, her parents and her grandfather Norcia and his wife attended Holy Family Catholic Church in Artesia.
