CNUSD Teacher Arrested for Lewd and Lascivious Acts with Child

On February 26, 2015, the Corona Police Department was notified by site administration of the Corona Norco Unified School District of the possible inappropriate touching of a student by a teacher at the Orange Elementary School, in the City of Corona. During the investigation, Orange Elementary Teacher Shane Alan Kent, 55 years of Corona, was identified as the teacher accused of the inappropriate touching of a female student. Corona Police Detectives discussed applicable charges with the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office and on February 27, 2015, Shane Kent was arrested for lewd or lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14. As a result of the investigation and Shane Kent’s arrest, the Corona Norco Unified School District has placed Shane Kent on administrative leave.

At this time the investigation is ongoing and detectives believe there may be other victims. We are asking for parents of students who attend or attended Orange Elementary School, to speak to their children about any inappropriate contact they may have had with Shane Kent or any inappropriate behavior they may have witnessed. If anyone has any information pertaining to this investigation, we are asking that you please contact Detective Martin Vega of the Corona Police Department at (951) 817-5796.
