Alhambra , CA United States

Alhambra police arrested a high school teacher on Wednesday after evidence came to light that she was involved in an “unlawful sexual relationship” with a 17-year-old student.

Alhambra police public information officer Sgt. Steve Carr confirmed that Alhambra police had arrested 42-year-old Diana Yniguez and booked her on suspicion of child molestation and contacting a minor for the purpose of committing sex crimes. He said that Yniguez has since posted $100,000 bond and that her arraignment is currently scheduled for June 19.

The arrest occurred after the victim’s relative found “sexually graphic text messages” on the victim’s phone on Tuesday and alerted her father, as Carr wrote in an Alhambra Police Department press release. An ongoing investigation revealed that Yniguez had sent the messages, and that a sexual relationship between the victim and her had taken place on campus and in Yniguez’s car between the months of March and May of this year.

According to the press release, Ramona Convent Secondary School has placed Yniguez on leave pending investigation results. The victim had been her student during the 2015-2016 school year. There haven’t been any allegations of violence or threats thereof concerning Yniguez.

Alhambra police asks that people with more information about other “unlawful or inappropriate behavior involving Diana Yniguez” to contact the Alhambra Police Detective Bureau Tip Line at 626-308-4875.
