District Attorney George Gascón has announced that Richard Turner was charged today for sexually assaulting 10 girls while he worked at two schools in Los Angeles.

“A school is a place where our children should feel safe and protected by those who we are supposed to trust,” District Attorney Gascón said. “It is crushing for the victims’ families and our education system when someone takes advantage of a youth.

I am grateful for the young women who stepped forward in this case to recount what happened to them. My office’s Bureau of Victim Services will provide any needed services or resources to help them on the path from being a victim to becoming a survivor.”

District Attorney George Gascón announced that three men have been charged for a series of daytime robberies over the past five months, including the pistol whipping of an older shopper in the 99 Ranch Market parking lot in Rowland Heights.

“These brazen crimes – all of which occurred during the day – are deeply troubling. The victims had their sense of safety shattered,” District Attorney Gascón said. “The majority of the people victimized were from the Asian American Community and I know that this has caused significant community trauma. I hope that all of those who have been impacted by this spree of violence sleep better tonight knowing that those who caused harm will be held accountable.”
