2 More LAUSD Employees Accused of Misconduct With Students

LOS ANGELES — A janitor and a former teacher’s aide at the Los Angeles Unified School District have been accused of having inappropriate contact with students. The accusations come after the district dismissed the entire staff at Miramonte Elementary School in the wake of two child sex abuse investigations.

Paul Adame, a janitor at Germain Street Elementary, was arrested Feb. 6 for allegedly performing a lewd act on a student, the Los Angeles Times reports. The mother of the student went to police on Feb. 5 to report that “inappropriate contact” had occurred between Adame and her child.

The mother of another student reported to authorities that her 11-year-old son received love letters from a teacher’s aide, the Associated Press reports. The aide acknowledged that she wrote the letters, but said she had a “grandmotherly affection for the boy.”
