East LA Volleyball Coach Charged With Molesting 2 Teen Girls

MONTEREY PARK ( — An East Los Angeles girls junior volleyball coach was charged Tuesday with molesting two 15-year-old girls.

Jonathan Adam Roldan, 23, was charged with three felony counts each of unlawful sexual intercourse, oral copulation of a person under 16 years old and sexual penetration with a foreign object pertaining to one victim. He was also charged with three misdemeanor counts of child molestation involving the second victim, according to the District Attorney's Office.

Roldan was arrested Friday around 7 p.m. at his East LA home after one of the girls contacted school officials.

The Los Angeles Unified School District said the suspect, who was also a campus aide at Esteban E. Torres, would be placed on unpaid leave as soon as he was charged and would be terminated if convicted.

"Parents and guardians were notified over the weekend of an arrest by phone. A letter was sent home today with students," district officials said in a statement Monday. "L.A. Unified continues to cooperate with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department on the investigation. The District takes these charges very seriously. Every precaution is taken throughout L.A. Unified to ensure the safety of students and staff."

Roldan is being held on $1 million bail and is scheduled to be arraigned sometime Tuesday afternoon.
