Last Updated: 145 days ago
Chula Vista, Calif. - A former Chula Vista elementary school tutor and volunteer youth football coach who repeatedly molested a young relative was scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday in a South Bay courtroom.
21 year old Carlos Ojeda pleaded guilty in March to a single charge of committing a lewd act on a child under the age of 14 and agreed to be sentenced to eight years in prison.
At the time of Ojeda's arrest in June 2012, Chula Vista police said the defendant sexually assaulted the child several times, starting in July 2011.
Ojeda was a tutor on a contract basis at Lauderbach Elementary School.
The victim was not a student at the school or a member of the team Ojeda coached, according to police.
