California Teacher in Court Facing 87 Sex Abuse Counts Against 20 Minors

CaliforniaA 33-year-old California teacher is in court on criminal charges that span more than a decade. West County middle school teacher Ron Guinto is charged with 87 criminal counts involving 20 minors that he allegedly sexually abused over 11 years, from October 2002 to October 2013.

The former middle school teacher faces serious criminal charges including forcible lewd acts upon a child, kidnapping, and exhibiting lewd matter to a minor. Contra Costa Times reports:

Giunta worked at Making Waves Academy in Richmond when the abuses came to light in October 2013. He was fired from the charter school the following month and hired by the West Contra Costa School District in January 2014. He was arrested two months later. The charges relate to abuse committed on camp-outs and sleepovers under the auspices of Camp Epic, a private company founded by Guinta.

Several of the young victims testified against Guinto at his preliminary hearing. The testimony described repeated sexual abuse including oral sex, viewing porn, and masturbation.
