A special education teacher at Cesar Chavez Middle School in Union City, CA has been arrested for lewd acts with a male student.
Kristina Anna Baeta, a 38-year-old special education teacher, has been arrested for lewd acts with a 13-year-old students at her school. While neither the New Haven Unified School District or police department aren’t going into the details of what constitutes “lewd acts”, but they are saying that the family discovered communications between the boy and the teacher, and that led to them contacting officials. The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office is the one going through with the lewd acts charges.
Ms. Baeta has been placed on administrative leave by the school district. While this certainly does not lessen the disgusting factor of what Ms. Baeta is accused of, I can thankfully report that the 13-year-old boy was not one of her special education students. As I just said, it doesn’t lessen the fact that she may have had sexual relations with a boy 25 years her junior, but if it had been one of her students, that would have been a whole new level of “ick factor” that I can’t comprehend.
While it is not believed that any other students are involved, the police are asking that anyone with information to please call Detective Michael Ward at (510) 471-1365 or call the tip line at (510) 675-5207.
